Get Involved!

Wondering what else you can do to make difference and become part of the Symbiotic City Network?  Here are some suggestions:

1.  Become familiar with the issues.
We recommend the following books as great backgrounders to understanding the key issues:

2.  Participate in our Symbiotic Cities Network International Design Ideas Competition to explore and then exhibit your ideas about how we could more effectively design our cities and buildings to achieve symbiosis.

3.  Connect with us on Facebook at to find out about upcoming workshops and design jams.

4.  Inform your professional organization's continuing education program about the importance of regenerative design and symbiosis and suggest that they develop courses or conferences around the concept of regenerative design.

5.  Join a political party or NGO and advocate for natural capital and ecosystem services to no longer be considered "externalities" in our economic calculations.

6.  Plant a tree, or many trees! Believe it or not, trees are one of the most important generators of ecosystem services in our cites. One tree produces enough oxygen to meet the requirements of one person.

7.  Send us your comments, suggestions and ideas on how you think we can plan and design more resilient cities, as well as how we can improve the website. We are a new website, so we wlll very much appreciate hearing from you on how we can make it more useful for you, at Contact Us.
