Explore urban planning, green innovation and its links with public health.
Bionic City's insight:

Join to discuss Building Better Worlds on Tuesday, March 29th 2016 at the Edinburgh International Science Festival.

 

"Are cities and the countryside distinct environments, or can you bring the two together? With a proposal to create a ‘Leaf Walk’ bio-bridge in Edinburgh, we explore urban planning, green innovation and its links with public health. In this event we will bring together Melissa Sterry, scientist and futurist; Pierre Forissier, director at Biomorphis, the practice designing the Leaf Walk bridge; and Prof Richard Mitchell, Professor of Public Health. You will also get the chance to exercise your green fingers."

WILD: ReNaturing the City | Bionic City® | Scoop.it
Bionic City's insight:

WILD: ReNaturing the City will explore the value of Nature in our urban lives and ask questions such as: How might we biohack the city? Can we rewild modern life?

Of Imaginariums and Innovation

Of Imaginariums and Innovation | Bionic City® | Scoop.it

'Of Imaginariums and Innovation' by Melissa Sterry for Libertine magazine. Published November 12th 2015.

Bionic City's insight:

"Imagination comes before innovation - as many sci-fi authors have shown time and again.

 

Historian and critic Lewis Mumford once wrote of the works of H. G. Wells, “He enters utopia by hypothesis; that is, without any other subterfuge than an act of the imagination.” While a forefather of science fiction, Wells was by no means the first author to explore utopia, and its counterpart dystopia, through the medium of creative writing. On the contrary, Wells was building on an ancient tradition dating back at least as far as the earliest known literary works: to the very dawn of civilization and of the city."
