Complex solutions for a complicated situation
Cities today are not adapted to their citizens. The many forms of pollution, the architecture and the organization of our urban areas are detrimental to the health and well-being of the inhabitants. During this lecture Steve explores these impacts, the history of the evolution of cities and the nature of human beings. Steve discusses how city life causes chronic stress and many other discomforts. He explains how the current ‘solutions’, that are simplistic and non-integrated, do not work and tend to make the situation worse.
Steve presents complex and integrated Permaculture solutions that take into account who we are as humans. He demonstrates how holistic approaches are the only way to rebuild our cities. He talks about the cities of tomorrow where well-being and health can flourish in productive and beautiful environments.
