Biophilia is Imperative to Our National Security with Col. Mark “Puck” Mykelby


From our good friends over at Serenbe Stories, hear Monica and Steve Nygren’s interview with retired marine Colonel Mark “Puck” Mykleby. In this episode, Mark explains why biophilic communities are an important aspect of national security, how sustainability drives economic growth, and why smart growth at home becomes smart power abroad. You will also learn about the origins of the Biophilic Institute, as well as the work Mark is doing in the private sector to create more walkable communities. Though this interview is from December 2019, its themes are as timely as ever.
