What is resilience?

What is resilience? | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it
Over the past decades, few concepts have gained such prominence as resilience. There has been an explosion of research and policies into ways to promote resilient systems, but the content has often lacked a clear definition of what resilience actually means, let alone how to apply resilience thinking.

Resilience starts from the belief that humans and nature are strongly coupled to the point that they should be conceived as one social-ecological system.

Repetición de mantras (Investigación sobre reducción de estrés) | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it

What is a Mantram?

*A mantram (Sanskrit word meaning “to cross the mind”) is a word of power, a deeper inner level of speech containing divine syllables or sounds that have been handed down for generations. Mantrams have spiritual associations and when repeated silently, continually, throughout the day or night, mantram repetition helps one to:

1. Focus attention

2. Slow thinking for mental clarity, increased awareness

3. Interrupt the stress response

4. Produce a mental change in the person who uses it

5. Tap inner spiritual resources

6. Transform consciousness

(Note: “Mantram Repetition” used here is taught according to guidelines of Sri Eknath Easwaran, a spiritual teacher of meditation, from the Blue Mountain Center of Meditation in Tomales, CA. www.easwaran.org.)

Many businesses now utilise Blogs to attract traffic to their websites and promote their expertise to others in their particular industry or their target markets. Unfortunately, many give up this activity because their Blog fails to gain the traction needed to produce results, within a reasonable time frame. Many free online tools are now available to make the job of attracting large numbers of visitors to any Blog and this article provides great information on such tools.

Urban Sustainability and the Fundamental Importance of Water

Urban Sustainability and the Fundamental Importance of Water | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it
Really smart people are putting their heads together more frequently to discuss and find solutions to the enormously complex issue of urban sustainability and what the city of the future will look like. They have diverse backgrounds and often long and impressive resumes that can be daunting. I have spent virtually my whole career with one organization called the National Association of Clean Water Agencies (NACWA) and am retiring after several decades leading it – so the primary lens through which I see urban sustainability is water management. I have thought that perhaps my background biases me to the fundamental importance of water among the various infrastructure sectors but I have come to believe it not a bias but a reality.

Digital earth for manipulating urban greens towards achieving a low carbon urban society

Digital earth for manipulating urban greens towards achieving a low carbon urban society | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it
Urban greens are integral components of urban ecosystem, contributing towards quality of life and sustainable urban development. Urban greens can help in creating Low Carbon Society (LCS) by playing an integral role through sequestering carbon. India is undergoing significant change in the process and pace of its urbanization. As the growing population becomes more urban, the importance of the way urban areas are developed and managed will be a central point of intervention for addressing climate change and maintaining low carbon trajectories in Indian cities.

Cleaning Up Urban Waterways With Manmade Islands [Limpiar canales urbanos con islas artificiales]

Cleaning Up Urban Waterways With Manmade Islands  [Limpiar canales urbanos con islas artificiales] | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it

About 10 miles west of central London, Hanwell is one of the towns that sits along the River Brent, a tributary of the Thames. As is true with many urban rivers, the Brent is bordered by concrete walls as it flows through towns and has been heavily polluted by industrial effluent and sewage.

 

Recently, a local environmental nonprofit called the Canal and River Trust wanted to restore the natural riverbank, but was thwarted from taking out the concrete retaining walls because of concerns over flooding. But the group found a clever alternative—a system of floating wetlands that would bring back the natural edge.

Urban Ecosystem Services for Resilience Planning and Management in New York City

Urban Ecosystem Services for Resilience Planning and Management in New York City | Translation for sustainability | Scoop.it
We review the current state of knowledge about urban ecosystem services in New York City (NYC) and how these services are regulated, planned for, and managed. Focusing on ecosystem services that have presented challenges in NYC—including stormwater quality enhancement and flood control, drinking water quality, food provisioning and recreation—we find that mismatches between the scale of production and scale of management occur where service provision is insufficient. Adequate production of locally produced services and services which are more accessible when produced locally is challenging in the context of dense urban development that is characteristic of NYC. Management approaches are needed to address scale mismatches in the production and consumption of ecosystem services. By coordinating along multiple scales of management and promoting best management practices, urban leaders have an opportunity to ensure that nature and ecosystem processes are protected in cities to support the delivery of fundamental urban ecosystem services.
