Janis Birkeland presents the innovative new paradigm of 'Positive Development' in which the built environment provides greater life quality. A heralding work of how a positive and innovative design agenda for the built environment, underlined by an uncompromising valuation of ecology and nature's services, can mobilize our efforts in becoming native to the planet.

This second outstanding book by Janis Birkeland explores and promotes positive development in built environment design. With their roots in the infamous Club of Rome report, The Limits to Growth (Meadows, D. Meadows, D. Randers, . & Behrens III, W. W, The Limits to Growth; A Report for the Club of Rome’s Project on the Predicament of Mankind, Universe Books, New Tork, 1972), the United Nation’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) are probably the most.

Janis Birkeland presents the innovative new paradigm of 'Positive Development' in which the built environment provides greater life quality, health, amenity and safety for all without sacrificing resources or money. With a different form of design, development itself can become a 'sustainability solution'. A cornerstone of this new paradigm is the eco-retrofitting of the vast urban fabric we already inhabit.

New approaches to analysis, assessment and management systems that move from mitigating negative impacts to multiplying positive ecological and social synergies. New approaches to futures planning methods, strategies and incentives that do not just prepare for a grim future, but increase the means of survival and meaningful life choices.
