ELI5: Explain Like I'm 5


Ekistics is like organizing things so everyone can live comfortably. Imagine we have a big room with lots of people in it. We want to make sure everyone can move around and do what they need to do without getting in each other's way.

Ekistics is about making sure we use the space we have efficiently. It's like playing a game of Tetris, where we fit different shapes together to make the best use of space. But instead of blocks, we are talking about buildings, roads, and parks.

We want to make sure we have enough buildings for everyone to live in, enough roads for people to move around, and enough parks for people to relax and play in. We also want to make sure we are minimizing how much energy we are using to run all these things. Ekistics helps us decide where to put all these things so that everything fits together and works smoothly.

It's like playing a very important puzzle game to make sure everyone is happy and comfortable in the places they live.
