This week on Podparks, we are joined by Marian Stuiver, social scientist and head of the Green Cities Program at Wageningen University. Marian shares her long trajectory in urban resilience, reflecting on the work that led her to publish her book titled The Symbiotic City, Voices of nature in urban transformations.

The relationship between nature and humans is complex and intrinsically linked. Symbiotic cities recognize the four distinct values of nature and use them to center human development around nature, recognizing that we must adapt to the circumstances of our environment and not the other way around.
