THE NATURE OF OUR CITIES Harnessing the Power of the Natural World to Survive a Changing Planet

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Eileen Stevens

Contemporary Culture • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Listeners will find much to learn in this audiobook. Just when dire reports--fire, flood, calving icebergs--are enough to alarm anyone, this audiobook from ecological engineer Galle arrives with a refreshingly positive and heretical assertion that nature and technology can be allied. Narrating convincingly in a youthful tone that suits the author's optimism, Eileen Stevens earns high praise for her thoughtful, almost conspiratorial, tone. It's as if she's saying, "Pay attention, and you'll be surprised. She does well with the author's occasional words in Dutch, too. Galle came to Canada from the Netherlands and begins the text with an example of using soil sensors to save trees in Maastricht. Burn bots, nature apps of all types, and cures for eco anxiety are just a few of the positive insights in this revelatory work. A.D.M.
