Disruptive planning; zero-carbon transport networks. Paris: the 15-minute city. Low traffic neighbourhoods and zero-emission zones. Putting communities before cars. Carbon rationing; getting the alternatives in place first. Urban lungs; bringing nature back into cities. The war on waste; lessons in tax and circularity.
This session will focus on the (regulatory) art of consuming less. Smart everything; sharing the lessons of localised, integrated energy systems. Empowering communities instead of corporations. Energy: a service not a market. International examples of decentralised and accountable energy systems.
War, pandemics and wild weather are tearing today’s globalised food system apart. Spiralling energy costs then turn this into a cost of living crisis affecting producers, providers and the public in equal measure. Beginning with wasting less, what must we do to feed a hungry planet?
