1. Map of Ecological Interdependence

This map introduces Citizen Evolution and how humans are adapting the way they live and interact with each other and with the surrounding flora and fauna.“Interdependence” describes the dynamic interconnectedness and the reliance on one another socially, economically, environmentally and politically, required in this alternative future.

The map highlights the changing role of the citizens of Vienna as they participate in designing, producing and delivering new service initiatives that mimic the relationships found in natural ecologies. These citizens have become self-sufficient citizen-designers, citizen-producers, citizen-scientists and citizen-pharmaceutical farmers.
