URBAN ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY FOR SUSTAINABLE URBAN ENVIRONS
The COVID-19 pandemic has spurred a cross-examination of the way we live. Simultaneously, along with climate change, sustainability is up front and centre and on everyone’s minds at all times. The urban area and its associated design, planning, development and operation, plays and will continue to play a big role in bringing transformational change to address the changing way we live as well as our changing climate. To increase awareness and bring about beneficial living and urban environmental sustainability change that results in sustainable urban environs, my presentation will look at the following topics: • A change for the good; • The 15-minute city; • What’s happening in China; • Policy; • General urban planning; • Urban pubic space; • Transit-oriented development (TOD); • Ecological solutions, and; • Net-zero buildings.
