Adrian McGregor unveiled ‘Biourbanism’ at this year’s Frankfurt Climate Week 2022, joining the open discussion about resilience in our cities.
Themed ‘Advancing the Global efforts on Climate Transparency’, the conference is the foremost global forum for multilateral discussion of climate change matters. A total of 42 speakers delivered case studies and the latest techniques in addressing climate change from around the world.
“It was fantastic to join climate leaders from around the world to discuss global trends in resilience, and what we can act on today in pursuit of a healthier, more resilient tomorrow,” said Adrian McGregor, author of Biourbanism.
“The breadth of innovations, heavily supported by data-led solutions from a multitude of scientific disciplines, showed a clear global proactiveness in addressing climate emergency today.”
The Biourbanism framework, detailed in the book, was one such solution presented throughout the event.
“Urban science and ecology are quantifying how much of an impact humanity has had on the global planetary environment and other sciences themselves,” said McGregor.
“The concept of Biourbanism and resilience is not just crucial for cities, but for the future of humanity. We’re in a situation where the climate emergency is upon us and cities are already feeling its impact, namely increasingly common ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ extreme weather events which were discussed in depth from leaders globally at Frankfurt Climate Week.
“Biourbanism is a crucial tool for allowing us to enshrine resilience within our cities so that they’re equipped to deal with the challenges ahead and continue to be prosperous, fantastic places to live.”
