I was asked by the Fab City Global Initiative to edit 3 videos explaining three points of their initiative. I was provided with 5 hours of interviews by leading experts in their fields and had to boil it down to 3 times 1 minute videos… a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

The Fab City Global Initiative aims to encourage cities around the world to think and start their conversion to being the sustainable cities of the future. The initiative has already been joined by major cities such as Paris, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Curitiba, São Paolo, Mexico City and the city where it all started: Barcelona.

 

Reversible, it isn’t too late.

From all the bad news we see online we have this grim picture of the future, that we’ve messed up our planet beyond repair… but it’s not true. Today technologies already exist that could reverse our fate.

Can we rethink our ways to turn back the clock on the damage we’ve done? Kate Raworth talks extractive to generative and centralised to decentralised for Fab City as part of her keynote talk at Fab City Summit, 2018 in Paris.

Scalable, collaboration is key.

These technologies exist, and new ones are constantly being developed, but we need to scale them up, make the citizen of this world know about them, and use them for the good. The citizen is not just a consumer anymore, it’s also an activist, an inventor, it’s part of the movement.

Dave Hakkens, Francesca Bria, Indy Johar and Neil Gershenfeld agree – to secure the future of our planet we need to scale-up our impact, rapidly! Fab City turns to power of people, education and collaboration as explored at Fab City Summit, 2018 in Paris.

 

Possible, the future is bright.

Looking to alternative, almost lofty, ideas – innovating and understanding our potential.

Danielle Wood looks to space to understand how limitations on basic needs can help us rethink sustainable futures. Fab City Summit explored the city as a tool for prototyping preferred future scenarios and looked beyond the city for inspiration.
