Athens: A city, an ecosystem

In nature's ecosystems, a balance is maintained between the organisms that make them up and the energy used. What would the future Athens look like if we saw it as an urban ecosystem? Could it be fueled by the energy of its population? What if waste could be a new raw material?

The students, through a fast-paced design workshop, learn about the sustainable ecosystem of the SNFCC, about the sustainability practices followed worldwide and are invited to envision, design and build the model of the Athens ecosystem of the future.
