Milton Keynes: Garden Cities
Garden Cities are something that England is known for and today the students got to visit one of the best known one. This was a fully packed day of trains, busses, and walking. Milton Keynes may not be our favorite place to visit, but it sure was a great learning experience and one that was very important to the education of sustainable development in the United Kingdom.
Students got to hear about the ongoing development from someone who was born and raised in it. Additionally we listened to one of the original planners and developers who made this city a reality.
We were shown the sites personally by Tim who was one of the original developer who helped shape Milton Keynes from the beginning. Never have I seen such passion for something then what Ton showed for his town.
