Abstract

Ecology includes people and nature. The two are inextricably entwined; to separate one from the other is to undermine our struggle to achieve ecological sustainability. Mumbai’s history of excluding nature from planning and development has led to destruction of its natural waterbodies, forests, and hills. As these conflicts dominate the city landscape, we are intervening and re-envisioning cities through integrating people and nature, particularly in the city edges where it is the most vulnerable. With localized projects, we facilitate maximum community participation using bottom-up neighborhood-based planning approach that focuses on the networks of people and natural places. Our fight is for integrating people and nature, equality, environmental justice, and democratization of the ecology.
