Imagine 2050
Static Preview

By 2050 it is estimated that 70% of the world's population will live in cities. It's a prospect that today we cannot even imagine. So Veolia Environnement has joined forces with LSE Cities to visualise the challenges in terms of water, waste and energy use and provide future-proofed solutions.

In our imagination the 2050 city will have sustainability built in based on the circular economy. Find out how the home of the future will have nanobots to sort your waste, a self-cleaning bathroom and an ultrasonic bath.

Sustainability and Global Grand Challenges by Jeffrey Sachs
Static Preview

Jeffrey Sachs presents the key note presentation on sustainability, most particularly sustainable development (environmental and economic) for the first Global Grand Challenges Summit 2013 in London.  The lectures is on how sustainable development must occur and how countries are not doing enough to meet this in either terms of energy and the economy. Published on Mar 30, 2013

In an October 15th 2013 article in the Financial Times in response to the climate catastrophe of Typhoon Haiyan, he notes "People need to see credible energy plans, pathways for each country and region to a prosperous low-carbon future. Such pathways can be found, but aside from excellent work in a handful of places, such as the UK, Denmark and California, such long-term planning has not been done...The basic elements of a pathway include four key pillars: more electricity from low-carbon technologies rather than coal; replacing fossil fuels with electricity as the fuel source for sectors such as cars and household heating; greater energy efficiency in industry and the home; and the end of deforestation (which emits carbon).

The Rich are Taxed Enough: A Riech-Laffer Debate
Static Preview

Robert Reich and Mark Zandi debate Glenn Hubbard and Arthur Laffer on the topic: The Rich Are Taxed Enough. Moderated by John Donvan.

How do we fix the economy? The U.S. government's budget deficit is nearing a trillion dollars for the fourth straight year and unemployment remains high. With the Bush-era tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of 2012, what is the best move for continued economic recovery? President Obama says we should raise taxes on those making more than $250,000 to reduce the deficit. Others say that the richest 1% already pay more than a quarter of all federal taxes and higher taxes for job creators would slow economic growth. Are the nation's wealthiest not paying their "fair share," or should tax breaks be extended for everyone in the name of job creation?

Ken Webster - Head of Learning from The Ellen MacArthur Foundation (UK) introduces the concept of a circular economy. The end of the era of cheap fossil fuels and key materials, coupled with rising population and anxieties around water resources, food production and harmful wastes, demonstrates the need for rethinking our model of production and consumption, not merely patching it up.
