Tom Fisher

M.S. in Architecture-Sustainable Design Track (M.S.-S.D.). 

Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important part of development and redevelopment conversations. 

Tom Fisher will weigh in on the Ponzi Scheme we have had with the planet over the last 1 ½ centuries and its implications both locally and globally. He will offer suggestions on what actions the private and public sectors can take to avoid the most expensive consequences of not acting now.

 In the recent comp plan update process, communities across the region had varied responses to climate change and its relationship to resilience.

 Two cities, St. Louis Park, a fully developed city facing issues of redevelopment with respect to resilience and sustainability, and Maplewood, a developing city also concerned about resilience and sustainability but in the context of new development, both laid groundwork in their comp plans to address these issues.

 St. Louis Park’s focus on sustainability and resiliency includes programs, policies, plans, goals and strategies to mitigate and prevent climate change, including adoption of a Climate Action Plan, Green Building Policy and the establishment of a set of strategic priorities that includes a commitment to continue to lead in environmental stewardship.    

 Maplewood looked at sustainability and resilience through the lens of new development and how best to protect and preserve resources now and in the future.

 Cuningham Group, an architecture, landscape architecture and urban design firm committed to designing sustainable environments that make a positive difference in the world, will present their approach of thinking beyond property limits, prioritizing resiliency, supporting human health, respecting the vitality and diversity of cultures, and protecting our planet’s resources .
