Thrivability > Sustainability - Thrive Design Studio | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

 

Thrivability is a nascent philosophy which is currently being co-created by a network of social innovators and change agents throughout the world to address the challenges posed above… it is a positive and inclusive vision that is much more aspirational than sustainability. If sustainability is about asking the question ‘how do we fix the mess we’ve made?’, thrivability asks ‘what kind of world do we want to live in?’…

Biologists have long been wary of applying quantum theory to their own field. But, as Jim Al-Khalili and Johnjoe McFadden reveal, it might explain much natural phenomena

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 28, 10:57 AM

Quantum mechanics and physics are useful in explaining complex behaviors. Several thinkers and writers have used the fields to help explain these complex ways of thinking i.e. Karen Barad, Donna Haraway, etc.

A park underneath the hustle and bustle of New York City

A park underneath the hustle and bustle of New York City | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it
Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have a crazy plan — to create a park, filled with greenery, underneath New York City. The two are developing the Lowline, an underground greenspace the size of a football field. They're building it in a trolley terminal abandoned in 1948, using technology that harvests sunlight above-ground and directs it down below. It's a park that can thrive, even in winter.

21 Photos Of Nature Winning The Battle Against Civilization

21 Photos Of Nature Winning The Battle Against Civilization | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it
As solid and unshakable as we think our civilization is, its grip on nature is tenuous at best. If any cracks appear in the faces of our buildings or our machines, nature is quick to move in and take over. With this in mind, here are 21 photos of places and things that nature is in the process of reclaiming.
Anne Caspari's insight:

I love this. As soon as we turn around, nature is instantly regenerating.

Tree roots form a sort of "neural network" with one another, in an antifragile complex adaptive system

Tree roots form a sort of "neural network" with one another, in an antifragile complex adaptive system | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it

"In this real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration, Professor Suzanne Simard shows that all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected, with the largest, oldest, "mother trees" serving as hubs. The underground exchange of nutrients increases the survival of younger trees linked into the network of old trees. Amazingly, we find that in a forest, 1+1 equals more than 2"

This blows me away; I had no idea about these interconnected, synapse-like links from one tree to the next.

How I brought a river, and my city, back to life

How I brought a river, and my city, back to life | The Integral Landscape Café | Scoop.it
The Fez River winds through the medina of Fez, Morocco—a mazelike medieval city that’s a World Heritage site. Once considered the “soul” of this celebrated city, the river succumbed to sewage and pollution, and in the 1950s was covered over bit by bit until nothing remained. TED Fellow Aziza Chaouni recounts her 20 year effort to restore this river to its former glory, and to transform her city in the process.
