Index of Terms

Biophilic Design

Amanda Sturgeon uses this term to describe a type of building design that connects the occupant with the natural environment. She frames this as a return to traditional architecture, where “buildings were an expression of their people and unique to their place” (167). This type of design can be achieved through natural heating and cooling, and bringing the “outside, in” by using plants, water, and natural materials.

Carbon Sequestration

Carbon sequestration is the process of capturing and storing carbon dioxide; we can facilitate this process naturally by encouraging forest regrowth and plant photosynthesis and by abstaining from overtilling soil.

Climate Migration

Climate migration is when people are forced to flee their homes due to sudden natural disasters or other impacts of climate change such as sea level rise, extreme weather, and drought or water scarcity.
