INSPIRATION: What ideas, projects or movements have you seen that make you hopeful about the future of our cities?

VISION: In what ways should we design our cities differently in order to have a sustainable future?

Instead of building outwards we can build up to prevent deforestation. Electric forms of public transportation will reduce air pollution and public transportation being more accessible can also reduce air pollution. Ban all single use plastics and switch to more energy efficient materials and objects.

ACTION: What can your generation do now to bring us closer to this future?

  • We can promote these ideas on social media to get more people’s attention.
  • We can reduce single use plastics
  • Use LED lights because they use less power
  • Turn things off when we’re not using them (lights, tv)
  • Carpool more often and promote the idea of all electric public transportation
