Presenter’s Slide Deck

A new model for urban development is emerging as cities worldwide are responding to climate change.

The Maryland Department of Planning and the Smart Growth Network held this webinar on April 28, as Peter Plastrik, author of Life After Carbon, outlined a model that is transforming how cities design and use physical space, generate economic wealth, consume and dispose of resources, exploit and sustain the natural ecosystems, and prepare for the future.

This model is already being built out in cities large and small dubbed “climate innovation labs.” — places like Copenhagen and Melbourne, Austin and Vancouver, where city government, business and community leaders are working together to transform core systems. Plastrik explained how climate disasters can become urban opportunities and shape the next transformation of cities worldwide.
