Biophilic CitiesUSAEDUBiophilia is a term popularized by Harvard University myrmecologist and conservationist E.O. Wilson to describe the extent to which humans are hard-wired to need connection with nature and other forms of life. More specifically, Wilson describes it this way: “Biophilia…is the innately emotional affiliation of human beings to other living organisms. Innate means hereditary and hence part of ultimate human nature” (Wilson, “Biophilia and the Conservation Ethic,” inThe Biophilia Hypothesis, 1993, p.31). To Wilson biophilia is really a “complex of learning rules” developed over thousands of years of evolution and human-environment interaction.
Biophilic DesignUSAEDUBiophilic Design is an innovative way of designing the places where we live, work, and learn. We need nature in a deep and fundamental fashion, but we have often designed our cities and suburbs in ways that both degrade the environment and alienate us from nature. The recent trend in green architecture has decreased the environmental impact of the built environment, but it has accomplished little in the way of reconnecting us to the natural world, the missing piece in the puzzle of sustainable development. Come on a journey from our evolutionary past and the origins of architecture to the world’s most celebrated buildings in a search for the architecture of life.

We believe that it should endeavor to increase the share of active forms of mobility and public transport using all available measures, including planning. We realize that in order to build an attractive city to live, strong local economy is required. We therefore support any actions to attract new investors to the agglomeration and the support already present on the local market, provided that it does not contribute to the deterioration of living conditions and the health of residents.

Sustainable Cities Institute, National League of CitiesUSAINSThe Sustainable Cities Institute aims to give guidance and information to local governments that want to pursue sustainability - in their own operations as well as across the communities where they govern. This commitment to sustainability will challenge local leaders to find the best long-term solutions for balancing environment, equity and economy. To implement these solutions local government leaders will need to prepare their communities for change. The Institute is committed to helping cities achieve success at these community building efforts by supplying them with direct access to information on sustainable principles and practices, illustrated by case studies about what other communities are doing. This web site is intended to be a central location for sustainability information needed by local governments. We will strive to help local governments save time and energy that might be spent on research, and instead spend it on making change happen locally.
Sustainable Communities OnlineUSANGOThere are many definitions and there are many different ways for communities to attain a more sustainable future. The sustainability of a community depends on creating and maintaining its economic and environmental health, promoting social equity, and fostering broad-based citizen participation in planning and implementation. Communities that engage citizens and institutions to develop sustainability principles and a collective vision for the future and that apply an integrative approach to environmental, economic, and social goals are generally likely to be more successful.
