Nature & The City

- Operates on a self-contained economy that obtains resources locally.
- Carbon Neutral by promoting renewable energy, etc.
- City plan that promotes walkability, biking, and public transportation.
- Promotes conservation of resources by maximizing efficiency of resource use.
- Restores environmentally damaged urban areas.
- Ensures decent and affordable housing for all.

About 70% of the world is covered by water, but only 2.5% is fresh. Less than 1% of freshwater is easily accessible and traditional agriculture consumes 70% of it.

On the other hand Vertical Farming can fit 700 acres of farmland in a building the size of a large supermarket while using 95% less water.

Regenerative Culture

Regnerative Culture is the collective understanding and participation in a paradigm of life that weaves together society and nature to regenerate eco-systems & man-made systems to continue to sustain human life on our planet.

Creating Regenerative Cultures requires a shift in world view from the dominant-paradigm of ever-expanding growth and consumption. It requires a re-education and re-wiring into the secrets and patterns of nature.

This also means creating our infrastructure using as much recycled and renewable building materials as possible.


The energy we consume contributes to around 35% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Switching from Coal, Oil, and Gas To Renewables such as Solar, Geothermal, Wind, Hydropower, & Biofuels will cut emissions drastically.

According to IRENA It's possible that 80% of all energy will be renewable by 2050, and that switching from Fossil Fuels to Renewables will save the world 12 Trillion by 2050.

It's no longer debated whether it's cost effective to make the shift. It's both cost effective and imperative.


From ReliefWeb By 2040, an estimated one in four children will live in areas with extreme water shortages. By 2050, droughts may affect over three-quarters of the world's population. The average person uses about 101.5 gallons of water per day.

Climate change, when it comes down to it, is really a water problem. Understanding the water cycle, water municipality, and water efficiency are essential to creating solutions for water security.

Land, Soil, & Agriculture (Food)

Roughly 52 of Americas land is used for Agriculture. About 44o million Acres of which are monocultural crops. This strips the soil of it's essential nutrients, without letting it regenerate. In 60 years (as of 2012 according to Time) our topsoil will be gone.



Regenerative farming is a way to give back to the soil, keeping it accessible for generations to come, while simultaneously creating more nutrient dense foods. Which in turn, create healthier people. This way of farming is cyclical and wholistic and takes into account the entire ecosystem. 


According to Deforestation causes approximately $2 Trillion to $4.5 Trillion in lost biodiversity each year. While also contributing to 15% of total greenhouse gas emissions.
When we plant trees, we plant rain.


According to Climate MIT it would take 640 trees per person to account for all American emissions, which adds up to about 200 billion trees. According to CommonDreams restoring 1 trillion trees would cost $300 billion. Making tree restoration one of the most cost effective climate solutions.


According to the EPA transportation accounts for 27% of total greenhouse gas emissions within the U.S. The reduction of transportation emissions can be done through making public transportation more appealing, using more fuel efficient vehicles, or living a lifestyle that requires minimal driving.

One avenue to make biking, walking, and taking public transportation more appealing is to design city streets and roads using biophilic and biomimetic design.

This improves quality of life and public health by a measurable amount. Having nature around us constantly, is natural to us.
