Buying Back Nature: How consumer-driven systems can restore our damaged landscapes.

Agricultural pressures and mass consumption have contributed to the loss and degradation of natural landscapes across the globe, but a small and growing movement to integrate human and ecological welfare has proven that these two interests are not inherently at odds, and that consumer behavior can be used restore altered ecosystems.

Justin Terry of Masaya & Co will share insights of an impactful system that address environmental and social concerns by integrating principles of ecology, job creation and skills building with design.
