The subject of ecological networks is used in this theoretical and experimental teaching article for possible future developments in a sustainable, integrated and multi-disciplinary approach to urban and regional planning and urban and architectural design. The environmental and social sustainability paradigm of ecological networks is applied at both a strategic programming and a design level to three projects located in three provinces in Lombardy: Varese, Lecco and Como. These experiments were not limited to a traditional design of an ecological network with the sole objective of conserving biodiversity (on a regional, provincial and local scale), but were extended to include the use of the same integrated conceptual instrument for the urban and regional planning components to evaluate, regulate and/or design sustainable urban and regional development.

Keywords: Ecological networks; sustainability; urban and regional planning
