Many planners agree that a more centralized population is a good thing for long-term environmental responsibility. But as people all over the world continue to flock to urban centers, the challenge of creating sustainable cities becomes more pressing. How can cities be improved to ensure that their billions of residents have energy-efficient transportation, housing, waste-stream management, as well as clean air and water? This week on Sea Change Radio, we speak to Melanie Nutter, a consultant who has worked independently and as a part of city government to use technology and data to make smart and practical advances toward ecological urban planning. She walks us through some of the emerging policies and practices to promote smart, sustainable and resilient cities.
