We are part of the solution!
Cities consume 78 per cent of the world’s energy and produce more than 60 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions. Yet, they account for less than 2 per cent of the Earth’s surface. It is in cities that climate change will need to be tackled with radical exaptation of the historic environment if resilience is to be achievedRewilding Modica: Kassandra’s Prophecy is in today’s Sole 24 Ore!

The impact of farming practices, as seen graphically in this stunning image of Mount Taranaki in New Zealand, has nature literally encircled. Nature will ‘fight’ back unless a balance can be found.
Climate change is unavoidable now according to most scientists. The right decisions need to be made globally to at least mitigate the potential devastating effects and improve the resilience of our built environment.But could the effects of Climate Change be harnessed to create a better world? Could we perhaps turn this real and present danger into an opportunity to achieve balance with Nature? It is time for a new data-based biological urbanism and architecture as metabolic process.
