‘Designer ecosystems’ may help to achieve sustainability by building the best attributes of natural ecosystems into engineered ones. Past agroecological systems that purposely employed natural complexity for human benefit – from ancient Hawaiian fish ponds to the Biosphere 2 project – highlight the promise and the pitfalls of designing complex systems. Avoiding the pitfalls will only be possible if we apply recent insights into the power of biodiversity and landscape heterogeneity to regulate ecosystems.

 Designer ecosystems’ may help to achieve sustainability by building the best attributes of natural ecosystems into engineered ones. Past agroecological systems that purposely employed natural complexity for human benefit – from ancient Hawaiian fish ponds to the Biosphere 2 project – highlight the promise and the pitfalls of designing complex systems. Avoiding the pitfalls will only be possible if we apply recent insights into the power of biodiversity and landscape heterogeneity to regulate ecosystems.

It has been one year since the countries of the world agreed, for the first time, to act collectively on climate change. Since then, focus has turned to questions of implementation. How can the Paris Agreement successfully be put into action at the global scale, in our country, and in our communities? Are current actions ‘good enough’ to get us to the goal of limiting global warming to less than 2 degrees Celsius by the end of the century?

Join us for a panel discussion on November 28th to hear reflections from policy experts and students who were at COP22 in Morocco earlier this month.
