Connected Botanic Garden


At Pontio, in North Wales, a new Masters by Research in Relational Design (#api_MRRD) helps you make a positive step-change in a live wellness project for a region. Here is a project scenario.

When the first botanical gardens were established 3,000 years ago in Mesopotamia, they combined scientific enquiry with public education.

Today’s botanical gardens, ecomuseums – and, in the UK especially, #National Parks –  are looking for new ways to engage citizens – and as active participants, not just as paying visitors. These new relationships need to be designed, enabled and supported.

One #api_MRRD project scenario could be to work with Tregorth Botanic Garden (top); develop new relationships; and design a platform to enable them. 

is needed  in national parks the world over. An inspiring example of this approach was envisaged by @DubberlyDesign in their project Engaging members to re-imagine National Geographic

    Nice article. As an avid botanical garden visitor, I’m interested how various gardens in the US will use this information to make our botanical gardens even more engaging. Thanks for sharing!

    Good day, Mr. Thackara,

    Just finished reading your book, titled, How to Thrive in the next Economy: Designing Tomorrow’s World today.

    Your work has been too exciting and motivational to me. This has made me want to invite you to the youth organization that I work for. I think that the staff that implements youth development programmes in my organization will benefit immensely from your work. Now, I do not know the correct procedure, if I want to invite you.

    Apologies for this delayed reply. I am not able to travel much this year but maybe I can help in other ways?
