The first session discussed new approaches to physical planning of the built environment, in particular those integrating landscape, ecology and urban planning, as well as urban design treating the city as a system.
The panel included the themes of Urban Biodiversity, Food Urbanism and Food Security, Landscape Urbanism, Blue Urbanism and Water Sensitive Urbanism. The introduction to regenerative urbanism set the stage for the panel and discussions with a systems thinking approach to the sustainable city.
