The SYMBIOTIC CITIES NETWORK website is no longer being updated.

The team that created this site is now developing the

THE TWENTYFIRST CENTURY IMPERATIVE

Website and Podcast

which will launch in the fall of 2017

 


 

The Twenty First-Century Imperative Podcast series will explore the approaches and insights of scientists, planners, designers, engineers,politicians, business entrepreneurs, and other successful change-makers, who are finding smart, effective ways to meet the three critical challenges of the Twenty-First Century Imperative:

How will we continue to live on our planet without destroying our biosphere?

How will we repair and regenerate the environmental damage we have already caused?

How will we adapt to the escalating impacts of climate change?

Each episode will feature an interview with an individual who we think you will find not only inspiring, but also very relevant to helping you answer the question: “what can I do to address the Twenty-First Century Imperative?"

How will we transform our cities to shift us from our current parasitically harmful relationship with our natural environment to a regenerative, symbiotic relationship? This was one of the first questions that we asked after developing the definition of a Regenerative Symbiotic City. This blog outlines the key transformations required to achieve symbiosis.
