The Biosphere Eco-City (BEC) model divides sustainability into broad areas of interest. These Ten Themes provide a clear focus for discussion and action. Because they are concrete, they are also easy to understand. Discussion groups, based on Themes, can bring together people who share common interests. It furthers cooperation.
The creation of parks and wild lands within a city will provide habitat for a number of species, while providing health and enjoyment for residents. If urban green spaces are connected with rural natural areas, these corridors can reduce genetic isolation among plants and animals. In rural areas, efforts to increase species habitat will often involve private landowners; encouraging them to allocate parts of their country properties, farms, or commercial forests to the protection of species.
