Synopses & Reviews
The Toolbox for Exuma presents an approach to environmental management, design, and planning rooted in fieldwork and engagement. The Toolbox includes a number of unfolding pamphlets which can be displayed as posters or read as a book.
The world is currently facing many ecological challenges that relate to questions of resource scarcity, pollution, climate change, and risk. These issues are amplified in fragile island communities. In this context, how should society and governments anticipate the future of citizens? And what plans should be made?
The Exuma Toolbox is based on a collaboration among the Government of The Bahamas, The Bahamas National Trust (BNT), and Harvard University Graduate School of Design. The Toolbox offers a complement to land use plans that might end up "sitting on a shelf." It offers a process, rooted in fieldwork which is both active and reflexive, descriptive and prescriptive.
Hardcover Box including: Book 100 pages, 12 Unfolding Pamphlets, and 25 postcards (approx.)
