Using the experiences of William Browning and colleagues at the research and consulting firm Terrapin Bright Green, this chapter discusses how, with careful planning, we can find holistic solutions that can enhance ecological and human health. Although the effects of our communities on ecosystems cannot be understated, we must recognize that the design of human communities also affects human health and productivity.

Keywords:   William Browning, Terrapin Bright Green, holistic solutions, human health, productivity, ecosystems
