Cities are the answer to the climate emergency.

The global influence of 21st century cities is unprecedented. In successfully driving the world economy they have become the biggest polluter of the only planet we have.

Still mostly powered by outmoded fossil-based energy technologies they need to rapidly leap into the future. Cities need to embrace our latest bio technologies that mimic nature and jettison aging, polluting energy infrastructure.

Ultimately, this book is a dialogue on the life of cities – cities as living ecological constructs and vibrant habitats that are inextricably linked to the ecosystems of their surrounding landscapes and those of the planet. It is about restoring our cities and respecting the ecological services that sustain them, and it is about the solutions for making them better.
