Over the time relaxing in environment friendly Cayo Santa Maria in Cuba I was reading this optimistic book “The Optimistic Environmentalist – Progressing Towards a Greener Future” by David R. Boyd.
In my opinion most interesting was third chapter “The Circular Economy”. I think that aiming toward this type of economy should be the main goal for our group.
Happy Holidays to everybody and hopefully by the end of January 2018 we will have fully functional new website and blog that Hadi Ismail, Cheryl Bradbee and myself are working on for the last few months. Just to remind everybody that we are still missing bio and research info from some of the founding members.
In the waterlogged Netherlands, climate change is considered neither a hypothetical nor a drag on the economy. Instead, it’s an opportunity. By MICHAEL KIMMELMANhttps://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/06/15/world/europe/climate-change-rotterdam.html?smid=fb-nytimes&smtyp=cur&smvar=eg17
This is for sure adding strength and psychologically preparing us to be more resilient. We have to work together.

‘The Living City’ is a project developed in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA), Crazy Dames, Gladki Planning Associates and Evergreen. We have invited emerging, mid-career and established artists or artist collectives to work collaboratively with TRCA environmental experts to create new artworks focusing on themes identified in The Living City Report Card – carbon, air quality, water, waste, land use, biodiversity and collaboration.

THIS INVITATION IS FOR ME BUT I THINK ALL OF US CAN BENEFIT FROM THIS EVENT!
Aleksandar, from July 24 – 27, we’re convening the largest ever group of urban resilience practitioners. This is an important moment for every city, as leaders from across our community come together to generate solutions to critical urban challenges.
These solutions impact all of us — and that’s why I’m asking for your input today. Send a digital postcard to the Urban Resilience Summit today and tell us what resilience means for you and your city.
Our work could impact every city — yours, mine, and cities that haven’t even been built yet. The summit will bring together leaders from across the resilience community to create solutions, share knowledge, and continue planning for a more resilient future.
Aleksandar, that future is for all of us, which is why we need your input. Your postcard will be shared with urban resilience leaders from around the world — to spur ideas, innovation, and creativity. Help spark and inspire the next idea to make our cities more resilient.
But the Summit is coming up fast. Send your postcard today to make sure we get it in time for the Summit:
Thank you for your participation,
President, 100 Resilient Cities
They help cities around the world become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges
that are a growing part of the 21st century.
I think this might be interesting?
This is something I have been fretting about for some time. Fretting because the word “nature”, in English at least, is as slippery as eels and as hard to get hold of as smoke. Nonetheless, I am entirely on board with the thesis of the piece. And there is a place for resilience in this discussion.
