INTRODUCTION TO CIRCULAR CITY


What is the only way for Humanity to survive?
- Only by living with the Earth in harmony, by accepting that we are a part of nature, respecting the universal laws and by cultivating a higher values in society. 

How can we achieve it?
- By integrating nature and technology to be in our service, uniting traditional wisdom and new science. 

In practice it means that we must implement new kind of settlement and find the optimal way to coexist in symbiosis with the environment. 


Do you imagine living in a community, where instead of fighting for survival, you can focus on things that really matter in life: family, friends, hobby, sport, personal development, culture and arts? All resources here are available and limitless for each citizen. There is fresh air to breath, fresh water and local food. Unemployment doesn't exist and working time is just 4-5 hours, 5 days a week.

It looks like Utopia or Lost Paradise and it's true, it doesn't exist. But if you can imagine it, then more likely you can attract to your life as well. And by sharing and spreading you make this dream a collective one. This is how a dream becomes real - when collective can accept the idea as a true believe.

Circular City represents an opportunity to generate a new interaction between City Life and Nature, and attract a different nature of work and co-living. This development takes a circular section of the grid in the jungle and creates a new experience for living and working in the city. 

Circular City function is not only to offer high quality of living and well-being of it's citizens, but also to care for and protect the natural environment with it's diversity of animals and plants surrounding the city. Is functioning as a forest guard and nature advocate. Why is it more important today then ever before?


OUR REALITY


What is a current reality of the place we are all dwelling in right now: Planet Earth in Solar System, Milky Way Galaxy. 



POPULATION


The global population in 200 years has grown from 1 billion to over 7 billion. It is expected to keep growing 1.1% per year (200 thousand per day), and estimates have put the total population at 10 billion by 2050.



TODAY CITIES

In 1960, only 34 percent of the world lived in cities. Nowadays, about 54 percent of us do. Since industrial revolution the population is migrating to the cities, mostly for the reason of better work, education, healthcare and quality of life in general. It causes unorganized grow and over saturation. People start to realize that living in cities is not save nor even healthy. Today cities are like a cancer cells growing in unorganized way on the surface of this beautiful planet, consuming finite natural resources and producing mountains of toxic waste.



NATURAL ENVIRONMENT


The Earth is entering its sixth mass extinction: an era in which the planet's environments change so much that most animal and plant species die out.  

A “biological annihilation” of wildlife in recent decades is under way.  The scientists found billions of populations of mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians have been lost all over the planet, leading them to say a sixth mass extinction has already progressed further than was thought. [The Guardian]

Last mass extinction was 65 million years ago, an giant asteroid impact on Mexico, ending age of dinosaurs, when some of three-quarters of the plant and animal species on Earth went extinct.

Humans have destroyed 83% of wildlife and half of all plants on Earth in just few decades — study reveals. This picture is really sad. Farmed poultry today makes up 70% of all birds on the planet, with just 30% being wild. The picture is even more stark for mammals – 60% of all mammals on Earth are livestock, mostly cattle and pigs, 36% are human and just 4% are wild animals.

"Humans will cause so many mammal species to go extinct in the next 50 years that the planet's evolutionary diversity won't recover for 3 to 5 million years." [WEF]



CLIMATE CHANGE

Climate Change – Source: Carbon Credit Capital 

Climate change is happening, and we know that it is caused by our actions. We release carbon dioxide into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels for energy, farming, and destroying forests. These carbon emissions are causing the greenhouse effect, trapping heat and making the Earth's atmosphere warming faster than it ever has. Weather patterns and natural environments are changing quicker than wildlife or even people can adapt.

Global temperatures have been rising for over a century, speeding up in the last few years, and are now the highest on record. This causes negative impacts such as the melting of Arctic sea-ice, prolonged heat-waves and rising sea-levels. Indigenous people also observe this changes. As they live since many generations and millennia in harmony with nature, they now observe different signs from nature and aberration from animal and plant world, that affects them directly and all of us at some point.

Forests are crucial in the fight against global warming, by absorbing carbon from the air. But if forests are cleared, or even disturbed, that carbon is released as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. 




SOLUTION


There are already attempts ato solve this problems. World leaders have created 17 societal global goals for a better world by 2030 and on many levels there are being actions to improve world current situation. But it is still too little and too slow. In order to survive as a specie, we have to urgently rethink and redesign all aspects of our lives. We need an ultimate solution addressing all the problems and a collective effort to implement it.

To find a shelter for exponentially growing world population and to reverse climate change and stop shrinking of natural environment, we need a new settlement model, solution integrating nature and modern science. Circular City model is the ultimate, most efficient settlement model for the contemporary community.





Progress is the realisation of Utopias. - Oscar Wilde



Is it actually possible to approach in our lifetime the Utopian vision of humanity living in peace?

Although all the efforts made in society are done to improve the quality of living of people, we probably will never reach the perfection here on Earth but definitely we can be more efficient and get closer to the Utopia by merging in the intelligent way the traditional way of living with the modern science. 

Circular City is uniting nature and technology and bringing us solution to the 21st century biggest challenges. It is a community model designed to assist human evolution and conserve Earth's biodiversity.

It is also a contribution to the vision of the ideal society where the universal values are respected and where simple living goes with constant search for improvement.
