Since 2009, the majority of humanity lives in cities. This fundamental change has an impact not only on the way of life, but also on the place of nature in urban areas. Through exploration of four key cities – New York, Rio de Janeiro, Tokyo and Paris – « Naturopolis » tries to understand how the mega-cities of today are striving to integrate nature and wildlife in the urban contemporary life and what are the transformations of cities for sustainable and green future. Through meetings with various stakeholders of these mutations- planners, naturalists, historians, scientists, architects, landscape architects, artists, activists … – « Naturopolis » will not only interrogate the place of nature in the history of cities since their creation, but also will analyze scientific thinking that leads today; before turning to solutions offered for the future to find a sustainable balance between nature and urban life.
