Abstract

In the actual Anthropocene the world population is growing at a considerable rate, producing an impressive footprint on the Earth’s ecosystem. How long nature will be able to keep us with this is the main challenge for us? Climate change, water scarcity and rising resource prices show at an increasing rate that nature’s abilities are not inexhaustible. A resilience-oriented development, therefore, must act into a new urban metabolism in the urbanizing planet. When we plan and manage cities as organism with their own metabolisms it becomes clear that they are not separate entities. Cities use nature as their supplier of fuel, food, material resources and water, and nature also absorbs the waste generated by those cities.
