We welcome David Ames for a presentation about Ebenezer Howard and Letchworth Garden City and what we can learn from it in light of COVID-19
Letchworth Garden City is the brainchild of Ebenezer Howard, who promoted a new social, community and economic model that sought to capture value from the land for community benefit, incorporating community governance, long term stewardship and beautiful well-designed places for all.
This was by a series of principles set out in his book published in 1898. It is the world’s first garden city and was developed as a living experiment of these principles. It went on to influence hundreds of Garden Cities and Suburbs across the world and despite being nearly 120 years old, is the closest example of Howard’s principles in practice in the world.
