One of the most influential urbanists of all time, Doug Farr is a legend in his own right. He co-chaired the development of the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED for Neighborhood Development (LEED-ND) and has served on the boards of urban sustainability organizations including the Congress for the New Urbanism, Bioregional, EcoDistricts, and Elevate Energy. Based on his pioneering sustainable design practice, Doug authored two urban planning best-sellers Sustainable Urbanism: Urban Design with Nature and Sustainable Nation: Urban Design Patterns for the Future

Doug’s insights have been celebrated internationally, and he speaks regularly at world-class conferences. His design philosophy is centered on the notion that the world needs to change, and we are the ones to initiate it. According to Doug, change should start with the end in mind, and that end is carbon neutrality. How can we get there? By working together. By holding ourselves accountable. By modifying our habits. Shifting the industry. And ultimately, redefining our conception of beauty to include health, happiness, and equity.
