The Retail and Entertainment Knowledge Community (REKC) fosters the creation, discussion, and dissemination of knowledge about the retail and entertainment environments among practitioners, clients, retailers, and the general public to advance the practice and improve the quality of retail and entertainment environments.
Everything is connected to everything else. Everything must go somewhere. Nature knows best. There is no such thing as a free lunch. Barry Commoner’s Laws of Ecology provides a framework for understanding the forces that govern the complex natural world. The Laws of Ecology apply to the urban environment as well. Retail is a great example. If in this presentation we equate shoppers, retail workers, and transportation operators to biotic components and to the bricks and mortar of stores, streets and walkways of a retail area to abiotic elements, and explore how these elements relate “naturally” to each other within an urban ecosystem.#Workshops #Presentations #2014REKCNewYorkWorkshop #Conferences
