Jakarta is using urban planning to maximize its sustainability.

This is the first of a series of articles from Sustainia about the best urban solutions to climate change from all over the world, from adaptation to mitigation and everything in-between. Check out all solutions on the Global Opportunity Explorer .

Heavy monsoon rains in South Asia and hurricanes Harvey and Irma were just a few of the natural disasters that crippled cities around the world last year. Consequently, it was no surprise that World Economic Forum put extreme weather and failure of climate-change mitigation and adaptation right on the top of its global risks list in the Angara Oval Aquamarine Solitaire Pendant with Diamond krN6UHpL
. This leaves us with the question of how cities can become better prepared for a future with more ravaging weather caused by climate change.

Investments in climate adaptation is a necessary expense for cities that want to safeguard against the negative impacts of a warming climate. But these investments also can provide cities with substantial environmental, social and economic benefits. For example, creating and restoring city parks and coastal wetlands offers the potential to protect freshwater resources, provide more attractive cityscapes, increase biodiversity and reduce public health expenses, all the while leaving cities better equipped to cope with extreme downpours or floods.

Creating and restoring city parks and coastal wetlands offers the potential to protect freshwater resources, provide more attractive cityscapes, increase biodiversity and reduce public health expenses.

Let’s take a closer look at three cities using green spaces as a multipurpose solution to deal with flooding and heavy rains, while reaping a plethora of social and environmental benefits.


Recreation and adaptation go hand-in-hand in Gladsaxe

Aiming to make its citizens more active and to connect the city, Angara Round Sapphire Dangle Earrings in 14k Yellow Gold jTWu6PFKaW
has managed to include recreational uses in all aspects of one of the largest Danish climate adaptation projects yet.

Gladsaxe struggled with the challenges with increased rainfall resulting in overflow from a combined sewer system. In 2011, one extreme weather event led to damages of more than $900 million. Avoiding similar losses in the future, the city is implementing areas that serve as both climate adaptive and recreational spaces.

With an area equivalent to 200 soccer fields, the Gladsaxe Heights Nature Park is one of the largest climate adaptation projects in Denmark. "Paddle tennis" courts, skateboarding areas and climbing frames all act as rainwater reservoirs during intense rain but most of the time provide fun recreational spaces for children. The project also includes a non-profit social housing association that has developed a rainwater distribution system independent of traditional wastewater infrastructure, reducing total volumes for the system to process during cloudburst events.

With six nurses for every physician, nursing is the heart of American health care. Nurses spend the most time with patients and are typically very dedicated. They entered their profession primarily to care for people. But nurses face significant change and challenge in today’s medical environment. In this special series, you’ll hear the voices and perspectives of nurses in different regions and a variety of clinical settings.


“RESILIENT NURSES Segment 1” HUMANKIND produced by David Freudberg David Freudberg

Part 1 takes a no-holds-barred look at the stressful conditions in which many nurses work: the long hours, the emotional toll, the rapid pace, and the way that technology and institutional practices can make it hard to form a caring bond with patients.

Part 1

Part 2 presents inspiring stories of how active nurses use self-care techniques that help them manage, and transcend, the stresses of their essential work life, both on the job and after hours.

Part 2

Part 3 asks how nurses, who are exposed to continual suffering by patients, manage to keep their hearts open and maintain compassion. Nurses describe the centrality of communication with patients and the skills of “active listening.” Nurses are regenerated by the bond of caring they build with patients in need.

Part 3

Part 4 explores the very human level at which some nurses interact with patients at their most vulnerable moments. What spiritual questions about life and death arise in such encounters? We do nurses turn for their own support? And we look at the concept of “compassion fatigue” and ways nurses can maintain open-hearted care.

Part 4

A real-world glimpse into the pressures on contemporary nurses

While the majority of nurses report satisfaction with their careers, at times it is a very heavy lift. Work shifts often run twelve to thirteen hours. This prompted the American Nurses Association to issue a position statement in 2014 about the consequences of nurse fatigue. It cited risk for medical errors and reduced job performance as well as drowsy driving on the way home.

Rev. Julie Swaney (L) and Rev. Lucas Novak (R), Chaplains at Children’s Hospital Colorado

Other causes of stress for nurses include increasing patient loads, requirements to fill out numerous health care documents, a seemingly endless list of medications to keep track of and interpersonal tensions among staff. Nurses also must cope with emotions that arise when patients die and with the pervasiveness of medical technology—which can make it harder to establish a personal rapport with patients.

Henry Saiz is an electronic music artist who transcends trend and formula to create a musical language that can be difficult to describe, but simple to enjoy.

The Madrid-native Dj producer soon attracted the attention of UK giants such as Renaissance, Global Underground and Bedrock, his own label NaturaSonoris won 'Best Label' of 2011 by Deejay Magazine and his standout remix of Guy J's 'Lamur' brought him his first "Essential New Tune" from Radio 1's Pete Tong.

He was also chosen to follow in the path of dance music elite when invited to mix his own CD compilation for the prestigious Balance series (also in 2011) , a process in which he utilised vinyl, cassette, reel-to-reel tapes and over 100 field recordings that he'd recorded as a pre-teen – many still regard the mix to be the finest the label has released so far. Following on from the likes of James Holden, JorisVoorn, Will Saul or Agoria, Henrys addition to this world-renowned mix series has more than lived up to expectations and has set a new benchmark in depth and quality.

In the last years, Henry´s impressive curriculum has led him to perform around the world, accumulating many big successes, including praise from critics and the public from festivals such as Sónar, Creamfields, Ultra Miami, Global Gathering and Benicassim among many others.

Simultaneously, Henry has created and hosted his very own on-line radio show "The Labyrinth" with a growing legion of listeners worldwide.

After a long list of succesful releases and non-stop touring worlwide, Henry releases in 2013 his debut LP, the suggestively titled 'Reality Is For Those Who Are Not Strong Enough To Confront Their Dreams'. The embodiment of 2-years of production and recording, the album features 17-tracks over an extended listen to immerse the listener in a journey through Henry's own interpretation of electronica – a listen that is likely to surprise both his existing fans and the new ones discovering him for the first time

And with that, sit back, press play and immerse yourself in the sound of Henry Saiz.

To be sure, Washington’s intent was to establish a strong, self-determined, and independent foreign policy, but this idea also encompasses a sense of moral purpose and well being—sovereignty in the fullest and most complete sense. For America, this means a free people governing themselves, establishing their own laws, and setting up a government they think will best ensure their safety and happiness—or, as the Declaration of Independence says, “to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God entitle them” and obtain the full power to do the “Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do.” [21]

In the end, to have the command of its own fortunes means that America has the full use of its independence—not to impose its will on other nations but to prove, without help or hindrance from other nations, the viability of republican government. Washington’s wish, as explained to Patrick Henry, was that the United States “ may be independent of all, and under the influence of none. In a word, I want an American character, that the powers of Europe may be convinced we act for ourselves and not for others ; this in my judgment, is the only way to be respected abroad and happy at home.” [22]

The last journeys of Washington’s life were to the army camp at Harper’s Ferry, Virginia (now West Virginia), and to Philadelphia to consult on military matters. That same year, President Adams appointed Washington head of a provisional army during a period of tensions with France. But Washington was happily retired at his beloved home, Mount Vernon. A sore throat, the result of inspecting his farm during a snowstorm, quickly worsened, and he died on December 14, 1799.

The news of Washington’s death spread quickly throughout the young nation. Every major city and most towns conducted official observances. Churches held services to commemorate his life and role in the American Revolution. Innumerable pronouncements, speeches, and sermons were delivered to lament the event. From the date of his death until his birthday in 1800, some 300 eulogies were published throughout the United States, from as far north as Maine and as far south as Georgia to as far west as Natchez on the Mississippi River.

Congressman Richard Henry Lee delivered the official eulogy, which was written by John Marshall. Although we remember only a few phrases today, it included these memorable words:

First in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen, he was second to none in humble and enduring scenes of private life. Pious, just, humane, temperate, and sincere; uniform, dignified, and commanding, his example was as edifying to all around him as were the effects of that example lasting…. Correct throughout, vice shuddered in his presence and virtue always felt his fostering hand. The purity of his private character gave effulgence to his public virtues.
