Tag: workshop 1
In the first workshop, Frank David from the online audience wanted to know what is meant by the word sustainability and what would be examples of good, innovative sustainability in urban planning&design.
The discussion started with a critical question: what do you mean by sustainability? How do you create more homes without destroying the old ones? Is such a large population in Sibbesborg area sustainable?
Some practical ideas and comments from local people: safe environment for children to walk, a common living room for all local inhabitants etc. A city should look like its inhabitants – which inhabitants? What could be the tools for community involvement? Or should there even be democracy in the planning&design process?
Professor Trevor Harris brought up the subject of local resources. What resources does the area offer at the moment? What are the economic realities? Is there a genuine need for introducing something entirely new and radical?
The question: ”What is sustainable mobility in Sibbesborg?" provoked opinions in the online audience. If there are too many big markets, a car would be needed. Or shops should arrange transport for people! Sports clubs could also arrange transport for children going to their hobbies. Night time transport should neither be forgotten.
