Here’s Aaron Campbell’s video https://youtu.be/rYAZjYrjpW0
Last week’s speaker, Tim Taylor, spoke to us about planning models which are being experimented with in selected Cities in Europe. I especially liked his analogy of when America said that it would have a man on the Moon by the end of the decade. They had no idea how and they did it. They had a clear mission and they focused on that.
Tim’s essential theme was that we have to have a similar clear mission to reduce our carbon footprint as a City. It was interesting to hear, once again, reference to “People’s Assemblies”.
I came away thinking that the ideas that Jim Lunday spoke about a few weeks ago is exactly where we need to go. The challenge is that our structures which are in place to run this City (and every other City and town in this country) are last century and we need to invent new structures, using the planning techniques which Tim spoke about.
