Biophilic Cities partners with cities, scholars and advocates from across the globe to build an understanding of the value and contribution of nature in cities to the lives of urban residents and to move these ideas forward as transformative projects and programs. As the central element of its work, Biophilic Cities facilitates a global network of partner cities, organizations and individuals working collectively to pursue the vision of a natureful city within their unique and diverse environments and cultures. The form of the Network engenders strong, long-term relationships among the participants that effectively move the ideas explored by the Network from a conceptual stage to implementation on-the-ground. Because of its emphasis on a strong foundation of team-building, the Network is unique among global organizations working in parallel, and often in partnership, with Biophilic Cities. The work of the Network has attracted significant coverage. Recently, the work of the Network was recognized as a recipient of a 2020 SHIFT Award for non-profit leadership.
