WHAT IS THE BIOPHILIC CITIES NETWORK?
The Biophilic Cities Network is a global partnership created by Dr. Tim Beatley in the Department of Urban and Environmental Planning at the University of Virginia. The network is currently comprised of cities, communities and towns that are dedicated to improving the way nature is incorporated into urban environments and enhancing the connection residents have with it.
The network provides the opportunity to coordinate with other cities and towns leading the efforts toward a greener and healthier future for urban areas.
"The Biophilic Cities Network intends to connect people all over the world, both ordinary citizens and urban leaders, desiring to welcome more nature, and greater love of nature, into urban life. The network will complement existing networks and organizations, and offer a unique opportunity to share best practices and develop a stronger global attitude toward embracing
nature in cities."
