Globally, cities are reinventing themselves to handle the climate catastrophes they are facing today. That reinvention is taking place in real time and, in many ways, is adding valuable benefits to those living in the cities and beyond.
In his book, Life After Carbon, author Peter Plastrik talks to leaders in city governments, businesses, and local communities that are taking the challenge of climate change and converging it with other radical, yet necessary, changes.
Plastrik will reflect on his book, discuss how his continued work and research has evolved his thinking, and share how replacing the pillars of the modern-city model, converting climate disaster into urban opportunity, and shaping the next transformation of cities worldwide will map a path to a sustainable future. The conversation will be moderated by William Shutkin, a social entrepreneur, executive, attorney and educator who has been at the forefront of the urban sustainability field for over three decades.
