CrowdDoing is recruiting volunteers who could help us advance our biophelia simulation collaboration. Expertise from multiple disciplines are welcome.


Biophilia Simulator Thesis:


Globally more deaths per year are linked to urban air pollution than to automobile accidents. But increasing plants in cities can be a major countervailing force.


Biophelia was defined by E.O. Wilson as ""the rich, natural pleasure that comes from being surrounded by living organisms." Over the years, evidence has mounted of the mental and physical health benefits plants can provide to humans.


If the density of plants per acre in a neighborhood or city reaches botanical garden density (that is, comparable to the level of plants per acre of the Forest City in southern China, the neighborhood of the Bosco Verticale in Milan, or the neighborhood around largest vertical garden in the world in Bogota, Columbia), the number of deaths in cities from air pollution can be nearly eliminated and cities can become more livable places.


How can we bring this reality closer in cities around the world?


CrowdDoing has simulated health and economic gains from increased plant density through vertical gardens in hospitals and libraries. These can be extended and deepened through further outcome simulation, contextual modeling and visual illustration carried out by a diverse range of volunteers, potentially including city planners, biologists, and hospital/medical system experts.
