All too often, cities are perceived as the opposite of nature — or at least in need of more “natural” features such as parks and green buildings. But the relationship between cities and their hinterlands is more nuanced and complex — a more urban world is also a greener one, as land preserved from development acts as a cooling force and carbon sink for a warming world. This week, we’re joined by Cities4Forest’s Scott Francisco to talk about the urban-forest continuum, his experience at COP26, and his plan to rewild Brooklyn Bridge.
