EARTH DAY 2024
Our world is in crisis—global climate change, projected sea-level rise, species extinction, resource depletion, environmental degradation, pollution, war, famine, and growing inequalities are just some of the challenges confronting us today.
The greatest challenge we face is reversing these trends.
. . . .
Researching the impacts of climate change and species extinction on Earth ecosystems is hard. Living life as if nothing has changed once these lessons are learned is even harder. If we are willing to take Earth science seriously, then we must begin to think like global citizens towards the total redesign of just about every "thing" our modern economy has to offer. This is a daunting challenge—one which will require each of our attention.
The scope, scale, and vision required to address these challenges may appear insurmountable; however, the essence of reality itself suggests that if we can conceptualize a strategic course of action, we can transform it into reality.

THE WORLD FAIR AS A TOOL FOR ECONOMIC
& EARTH REGENERATION
Since its inception in 1792, The World Fair has awed and inspired an anticipating public. Through the art of leaving no stone left untouched, the World Fair / World Expo's introduced the world to the wonders of invention. From steam engines to mass assembly lines, The World Fair presented the world of tomorrow, today.
It is now our time to set into motion the next great Industrial Revolution:
a global circular economy!
Circular Cities 2030 / EXPO 2030 is a proposed World Fair Event that will happen simultaneously in every city, town, community, and region around our world—where, unlike the World Expo's of the past that were site specific, Circular Cities 2030 will have s city-wide, (bio)regional presence.
In the race-to-zero not one solution will be the silver bullet. The goal is to ignite and inspire a collaborative plan of action that is both robust and open to change.
This website is designed for the exploration of ideas.
It is a work in progress and is therefore constantly evolving.
It is dedicated to the Sciences—to the artists & engineers engaging reality:
Are you ready to take a vision quest in the Circular Design Revolution?
This is where the fun begins!
