Ever more people leave nature and the countryside in order to live in the city. Unexpectedly biodiversity in the city grows, too, although the growing density and restlessness (simultaneously biodiversity decreases on the countryside due to monoculture).In fact there is a new kind of city coming into existence where men, animals and plants live together and are able toe profit from each other: the Next City.

More biodiversity is an opportunity for more Quality of Life in the city: better (micro) climate, more conscious exchange with the urban environment and higher real estate value. Who doesn’t want to live in a leafy street and wake up in the morning with birds singing?
