This session will present benchmark data gleaned from examples of the world’s best ecologically-based regional design/urban developments. The discussion also will include two ecologically-based regional/city restorative projects: the Clinton Climate Initiative in 12 cities around the world, and New Orleans’ post-Katrina experiences related to sustainable housing and community scale development and successful coordinated efforts by public authorities and private enterprise. This effort has created a permanent new economic base for the city, and eventually the ecological region, in sustainable industries. Attendees will benefit by seeing how to expand the scope of their practices, by learning benchmarked data from actual projects, and by obtaining information on research they can perform. Attendees will be enabled/empowered with the conviction that they can immediately influence their projects and communities at a profound scale.

  • …and the tool will instantly populate, from a deep well of open source data, everything that is known about that place and its state of health. It is the beginning of a conversation. The circles are smaller or larger to indicate their state of health. An indicator bar in each quadrant begins to show whether natural systems are robust and resilient, the constructed systems are high-performing, the economic systems are prosperous, and social systems are whole. These indicators are currently shown as indexes on a scale of 0-100. Zero is doing nothing. 100 is doing everything that is known to be possible within the system. And because this is an open source and constantly evolving tool, what is 100 percent on one day, may become 99 percent the next day. For each action or piece of information added to the tool expands what is possible.
  • In the center, these dots represent strategies that can be taken to impact the components. The strategies impact multiple components, sometimes positively and sometimes negatively, in a complex web of connections.
  • The components can also be seen as “things that we care about” and for each community or project team, the things we care about most might be different. The idea is that groups can enter this tool from whatever component or strategy they care most about and by pulling on that strand of the web, they will soon discover other things they are connected to. By entering at one component they will discover the strategies that are connected to that component as well as the other components they are connected to by those strategies. And as these strategies are selected the little bit of pink in the bar helps to indicate the relative impact these strategies have on the overall health of the system.
  • If a team drills into a component, they see more information about how that component’s ideal state is measured (for now) as well as links to other components and strategies and LEED credits that are related to it. A definition of the component and imagery can be provided. This can also be an infinite linking place to open sources of data, and other rating systems related to this component.
