Episode 4: Regenerative Architecture
Play • 31 min

In this episode we will be speaking with Melissa Poon, an architectural designer on regenerative and circular design in architecture. We explore the ways in which the built environment and its occupants can operate in symbiosis with nature and how that can help in our vision of a more green future. Listen further for our “temp check” segment on relevant leftist news, and actions to take, hosted by CJTO members Chloe Lederman and Freyja Chapman. Finally, learn the movement song “Everything to Gain” originally sung by Allison Beyer, co-written with Devon Sproule from Showing Up for Racial Justice (SURJ).

LYRICS


When you're healed, I'm healed

When you're whole, I'm whole

When you're safe, I'm safe

When you're free, I'm free


When you can breathe, I can breathe

When you win, I win

When you're fed, I'm fed


We have everything to gain


When you're healed, I'm healed

When you're whole, I'm whole

When you're safe, I'm safe

When you're free, I'm free


When you can breathe, I can breathe

When you win, I win

When you feel respect, I feel respect


We have everything to gain


When you're healed, I'm healed

When you're whole, I'm whole

When you're safe, I'm safe

When you're free I'm free


When you can breathe, I can breathe

When you win, I win

When you're home, I'm home


We have everything to gain
