What to expect
Live from D-Congress 2022
For city dwellers, its clear to see that the places we live, and how we live in them, have all been designed to support a former age. As the intersecting roads and junctions weave across a gridded map, our homes, offices and shops line streets made for diesel guzzling cars and trucks. Our pavements crammed with people moving from A-B, sometimes on a journey that has taken them many miles from home. Our cities hum with the movement of the modern age.
But perhaps it’s time to take another look at the spaces that we move between. Imagine 50 years from now, when our means of transport, our work-lives and our carbon usage will be a world away from where they are today. What, then, should our cities look like? How should they ‘be’ and how do we get them there?
