Due to the ecological destruction of the countryside, biodiversity in cities is now often much greater than in rural environments. As evolutionary ‘hotspots’, species in urban environments have to adapt rapidly to new conditions. Moreover, encounters with ever-new species leads to the emergence of changing food chains. So far, this diversity is hardly reflected in current design practice, and cities have been developed almost exclusively as human habitats.

The Multispecies Urbanism learning trail concentrates on inclusive forms of urban development, which takes the needs of all the species that inhabit a city into consideration.

*) The name of this trail is based on a term first coined by Debra Solomon.

Multispecies Urbanism in the Neuhaus Curriculum

Activities in the context of this learning trail

Individual routes have been mapped out through the rooms spaces? and the Neuhaus programme based on a number of overarching themes. The ‘learning trails’ enable participants to discover how the chosen subject manifests itself in different ways in different programmes, and how it connects with other learning trails.
