Other Other ResourcePledge*I pledge to actively further the Biophilic Cities Mission and commit to protecting and enhancing opportunities for citizens to connect with nature in my city.I hereby commit my city, organization, university, or self to helping my community become a Biophilic City, and to join together with other cities in the global Network of Biophilic Cities. I understand that a Biophilic City is a city of abundant nature, where citizens, young and old, have rich daily (if not hourly) contact with the natural environment; where citizens have nature nearby, where larger natural areas and deeper nature experiences are an easy walk, bike or transit ride away; and where the urban environment allows for and fosters connections with diverse flora, fauna, and fungi; a city where citizens recognize, are curious about, and actively care for the nature around them; a city where citizens spend extensive time outside, learning about, enjoying and participating in the natural world; a city where leaders and elected officials place nature at the heart of their decision making, and where every major planning and development decision is judged by the extent to which nature is restored and connections with the natural environment enhanced. Declaring my intention to become a member of the global network of Biophilic Cities means that I commit to working diligently to protect and restore nature and to creating opportunities for new nature and connections to the natural world wherever possible; sharing information and insights about what tools, techniques, programs and projects have been successfully applied in our city; assisting other cities to become more biophilic, offering health in data collection and analysis, sharing technical expertise and knowledge, and other forms of political and professional support for efforts to protect and expand urban nature; meeting periodically as a group to share experiences and insights and to provide mutual support and guidance in advancing the practice of biophilic urbanism.CommentsThis field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.
