Finding climate change solutions that connect cities back to nature

Conference Kotchakorn Voraakhom TED Kotchakorn Voraakhom

From London to Tokyo, climate change is causing cities to sink—and our modern concrete infrastructure is making us even more vulnerable to severe flooding. In this talk, Thai landscape architecture specialist, executive officer of Porous City Network and TED Fellow Kotchakorn Voraakhom explores ways in which we could design cities to help fight floods, and how she developed a massive park in Bangkok that can hold a million gallons of rainwater. Voraakhom is also the founder of the Koungkuey Design Initiative, which works with communities to rebuild public spaces.
