Going Green: The Birth of a New Civilization

Apr 21 2010 - 9:00am to 10:00am

Since the 15th century humanity has achieved some incredible successes, including the birth of science, the establishment of democracy, and huge reductions in poverty.

The 21st century now demands that we turn our attention to the environmental crisis, and harmonize our lives with Nature.

What does this mean for our buildings, transport, and local economies? And given the urgency of the climate crisis, how can we accelerate our transition to this new green economy?

What strategies are working to foster green industries at a regional scale so that green practices translate into good jobs? What are the most promising technologies and market strategies for scaling up the use of resource-efficient technologies? Where's the creative edge of this movement today?

In this hour-long webinar presentation, Guy Dauncey shared his vision of the energy and climate "big picture", and specific ways in which local communities can work to reduce their emissions by 10%.

Note that the presentations are available below in PDF format. A Windows media recording of the webinar should be available here, soon.
