The team that created this site is now producing
THE TWENTYFIRST CENTURY IMPERATIVE
Website and Podcast
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?"
ResilientCity.org is an open, not-for-profit network of planners, urban designers, architects, designers, engineers, and landscape architects whose mission is to develop creative, practical, and implementable planning and design strategies that help increase the capacity for resilience of our communities and cities to the future shocks and stresses associated with climate change, environmental degradation, resource shortages, in the context of global population growth and migration. >>> See more about our mission

In natural world, opportunities for novelty are most abundant when systems re-organize. With some resilience thinking, one can see water abundant lakes and networks coming up in vacant plots, along side roads controlling the overall fabric of the city.||⇒More Info|
