Young Professionals Project

Red Group

The Red Group, hosted by Walter Brooke, eschewed the greenfield development idea as unsustainable and instead developed an urban design model to effect real change in exsiting communities. Our solution was a new political entity, with the platform Reform Educational Directions, in the belief that policy change is needed to encourage lifelong learning as an integral part of community design. Creating opportunities for a range of interactive activities encourages informal learning and a more cohesive community. The design of the community will develop once the policies are in place.
