The Natural City

February 24, 2022

A City that Lives with Nature

Cities have long been at odds with nature — using up its resources and depleting its health. They take up two per cent of the Earth’s land base, yet account for 70 per cent of the world’s carbon emissions.

But the Natural City is changing that.

Advances in design, technology, and human attitudes are making a new kind of city possible, one that works “with” nature to benefit the planet and enhance our own wellness, even as we sustain rapid growth.

The Natural City puts a premium on fresh air, and clean, renewable energy and water systems. It’s supported by the electrification of vehicles and smarter infrastructure. It has a vastly reduced carbon footprint and embraces local food systems. It’s a place of innovative urban design, and much more.

Houston, one of America’s fastest growing cities and a leader in the transition to clean energy, offers a useful case study on how we can build it.

CityAge, in collaboration with Jacobs and Biomimicry 3.8, brought together the people who are making the Natural City a reality.
