Eloisa Lewis is the CEO of New Climate Culture a unique company offering solutions for climate crisis. She stressed the importance of recognizing the community, species, and climate of a place when building an environment. She believes that we need to adapt to the needs of the place instead of imposing our own needs and creating from our imagination onto the space. Lewis discussed the errors that occur in landscape architecture and construction when the community, species, and climate of a place are not taken into consideration.
She emphasized the need to respect the gift of sharing the same air, water, and soil with all other forms of life and consciousness. Lewis also believes that we need to think about the world with new terms and frames to have a new industrial revolution and push forward with progress and that sustainability at its heart means longevity.
