Humanity's increasing detachment from the natural world, now spending 90% of its time indoors, has triggered crises in mental health, longevity, and hope for future generations. As we drift further from nature, the looming threat of extreme weather events like historic floods, heatwaves, and wildfires becomes more pronounced. Yet, amidst these challenges, there's a growing acknowledgment of nature's potential to fortify and revitalize our urban environments.‍‍

Enter THE NATURE OF OUR CITIES, a groundbreaking exploration of how technology is aiding nature in these critical times. Through modern advancements, we're witnessing a symbiosis between technology and nature, fostering resilience and sustainability. These advancements include:‍

  • Laser-mapping that identifies at-risk neighborhoods to fight deadly health disparities
  • A.I.-powered robots that prevent wildfires from reaching urban areas
  • “Talking trees” that raise awareness of increasing deforestation in a major city
  • Apps that track nature exposure to improve health and reduce depression
  • Intelligent water gardens that protect cities from floods and hurricanes 
  • Advanced sensors that achieve 99% tree survival in dry, hot summers

Now is the time to extend the technology we've developed indoors to the outdoors—and transform our world. We do not have to resign ourselves to our fate amidst an increasingly hostile climate. With revolutionary innovations, nature is no longer a threat, but our greatest ally. Read THE NATURE OF OUR CITIES and uncover the promising future that lies ahead.
