5. Human-centred and nature-based approaches in cities
In the Age of the Anthropocene, people and ecosystems have been battling for their fair share of space in ever-urbanizing landscapes. Yet, it has become clear that seeking and building synergies with nature is the only sustainable strategy of urban development. In this context, urbanism needs to consider human well-being and biodiversity on an equal footing. Urban space needs to be designed, planned, governed and used as a place for dynamic socio-ecological encounters and dialogues. Let us explore and be explicit about ways in which we can better steward nature in cities while providing high quality environments for citizens.
