There are many heroes out there trying to move the needle on climate change, but they don’t feel supported. We are trying to live sustainably in an industrial framework, and it is failing. Time is running out.
Citadels are places designed to support regenerative lifestyles. Citadels make it simpler to live an affordable quality of life that gets better with every generation, instead of the reverse.
Modern lifestyles are based on the idea that no matter how much of the earth we use up, it will continue to function without consequences.
Though nature is powerful, it needs some nurturing if we want it to continue sustaining us. We need to understand our place in the world and partner with our resources. Not just for their use, but also their regeneration.
Imagine a wall, built tall enough that you can’t surmount it. Is that what if feels like to create a more sustainable, or even regenerative lifestyle? What if just changing your lifestyle is not enough? What does it feel like when you use all your power to create change, and the inertia isn’t enough? When is it time to consider another variable?
Cities are the penultimate industrial machine.
Our belief is that to make a livable future, a lasting impact on the world and our lives, we need to live what can be described as regenerative lifestyles. But when we live in them in industrial frameworks such as the planning of our neighborhoods, that lifestyle is not supported and will eventually lose steam and fail. For some people, it is not even worth the struggle. They see the writing on the wall. It is because of the heros that have tried, that we have identified the Citadels model. Thank you.
If we have regenerative places, which are low carbon by design, then we design out the intermediaries. This is very similar to the approach of big technology companies taking down the old incumbents with ‘platform’ technology. What technology enabled them to do was to by-pass the middle man. Walkable communities get the vehicle miles out by placing your residence inside a regenerative farm. It makes it possible to provide you with new options in the hubs for transportation, recycling, food, repairs, etc.
