See the featured Urban Greenprint project (end of post), other resources, and the conference link below for a quick glimpse of an inspiring range of innovative, leading-edge, regenerative/ecological/biomimicry-based urban planning projects.
This range of initiatives may be useful for planners in furter defining the goal, domain, and methods of sustainability planning (the profession or an individual department). These projects are too design/building focused to define the full domain of planning, but the connections to the larger city and a/the method is illuminated. There is not much biophilia or biodiversity directly featured, but it is embedded.
The question to planners: what would the “planning” behind this work look like (code, general plan policies, guidelines, themes, project types, stakeholder engagement initiatives, etc.)?
