Science + Nature UNtapped - Rethinking urban planning: Why sustainable cities are important

02mar6:55 pm8:00 pmScience + Nature UNtapped - Rethinking urban planning: Why sustainable cities are important

Event Details

Urban growth shows no signs of slowing and more than half of the world’s population live in cities. This is set to rise over 70% by 2070. Urban infrastructure today is built for yesterday’s climate, not tomorrow’s. If the future is going to be different because of climate change, then the past isn’t so helpful. Systematically integrating technological, nature-based, and social solutions is key. Strengthening urban climate resilience and lowering greenhouse gas emissions is crucial and needs to be considered in transportation and buildings, the two main emitters of greenhouse gases. This talk will discuss cities as a cause of and solution to climate change, and how the City of Cornwall, Ontario is taking action.
