A Connected City

A Connected City

Communities are well connected within themselves but a bit less with other communities. People live in hyperlocal ecosystems, in a collection of micro-neighbourhoods where local cultures and identities are protected and do not become siloed.

A Human Biome emerges and finds its own equilibrium. People live in hyperlocal ecosystems, in a collection of smaller communities and micro-neighbourhoods where local cultures and identities are protected and do not become siloed. Communities become more self-sufficient, autonomous and people informally ‘know’ those who surround them. This sustainable model encourages local production and consumption although people still rely on international supply chains. A connected city also means improving green and public spaces and the development of derelict land to offer opportunities for people to meet and connect in the public sphere. Alternative currencies and exchange of goods within the communities embrace the grey economy.
