  • Urbanization has played a central role in the loss of global biodiversity but it can also be part of the solution. What is the importance of biodiversity for the city and its inhabitants and why should we make it, along with the fight against climate change, the top global priority? From conservation and regeneration techniques to the notion of ecosystem services and the global governance challenges of protecting biodiversity, we will explore how the FabCity movement can help reverse the ecological collapse that we face.
