Is it possible for us to live sustainably?
As part of Naked Planet I attended the Global Business of Biodiversity Symposium at the London Excel yesterday.
It was a huge meeting place for Government, Business and NGOs operating across all industrial sectors to talk about the issues surrounding biodiversity loss.
There were some great speakers there. Particularly a guy from Arup called Peter Head who spoke about sustainable cities. Some of the innovative ways which we can transform the cities in UK were astounding and also quite beautiful.
Just imagine if we made the most of our rooftops for all the megacities across the world to embrace sustainable living like this impressive video for Manchester shows:
Obviously this issue is far from simple and wacking a few roof top gardens on top of cities but these types of projects and thinking have huge potential to change the way we live.
