Urban Design

  1. Town Planning Services: The purpose of the discussions available on these pages is to help people in the movement to create an entirely different and more profound process by which we make our homes, our cities, and our lives. (USA)
  2. Intersection Repair: What defines your neighborhood? Do you know the people who live in it with you? Intersection Repair helps neighbors convert street intersections into public gathering places -- the most essential part of your neighborhood for community building. (USA)
  3. The City Repair Project: The City Repair Project is group of citizen activists creating public gathering places and helping others to creatively transform the places where they live. (USA)
  4. Project for Public Spaces: Project for Public Spaces (PPS) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating and sustaining public places that build communities. (USA)
  5. EcoSchool Design (TM): Ecological schoolyards are outdoor learning environments that teach ecological principles through the design of the schoolyard landscape. They can substantially improve the appearance of schoolgrounds while creating hands-on resources that allow teachers to lead exciting "fieldtrips" without ever leaving school property. (USA)
  6. EcoCity Builders: We are a non-profit organization dedicated to reshaping cities, towns and villages for long term health of human and natural systems. Our goals include returning healthy biodiversity to the heart of our cities, agriculture to gardens and the streets, and convenience and pleasure to walking, bicycling and transit. We visualize a future in which waterways in neighborhood environments and prosperous downtown centers are opened for curious children, fish, frogs and dragonflies. We work to build thriving neighborhood centers while reversing sprawl development, to build whole cities based on human needs and “access by proximity” rather than cities built in the current pattern of automobile driven excess, wasteful consumption and the destruction of the biosphere. (USA)
  7. Urban Ecology Australia: Urban Ecology Australia is a non-profit organisation promoting people and nature friendly urban settlements. (Australia)
