S4E5 — Why Daily Doses of Nature in the City Matter with Tim Beatley of Biophilic Cities

June 1, 2022

I speak with Tim Beatley on biophilic cities — and the technology that could power them.

This week, I am joined by Tim Beatley, Professor of Sustainable Communities at the University of Virginia and founder of “Biophilic Cities” to discuss why being in nature must be a daily, easy practice, his efforts to make every city in the world a “biophilic” one, fascinating stories of rewilding in cities, from the world’s largest urban bat colony in Austin to the world’s largest roost of swifts in a Portland elementary school, and how nature is all around us, if only we open our eyes.
