It's time to redesign our economic system

It's time to redesign our economic system | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

The vital connection between economics and a healthy ecosystem is still not understood by mainstream economists and financial theorists – what will it take?



Systems scientists know that Sandy and the historic drought that preceded it are symptoms of an economic system design failure; a system designed for a set of circumstances that applied in the past – a huge planet, small economy, abundant resources, unlimited waste sinks – but which are no longer relevant.

The World in 2050

This talk draws on the latest global modeling research to construct a sweeping thought experiment on what our world will be like in 2050. The World in 2050 combines the lessons of geography and history with state-of-the-art model projections and analytical data-everything from climate dynamics and resource stocks to age distributions and economic growth projections.

Green and Healthy Buildings: monitoring consumption & ecology in the built environment

Green and Healthy Buildings: monitoring consumption & ecology in the built environment | Développement durable et efficacité énergétique | Scoop.it

According to the United Nations Environment Programme, buildings account for approximately 40 percent of worldwide energy use and are responsible for 30 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. They also play an important role in the health and wellbeing of those who inhabit them each day.

The mass of information about what makes a building green tends to concentrate on new and innovative designs that create beautiful photo spreads. While such examples are inspiring, they make up a very small percentage of all buildings in operation.

Green Buildings Alive is an environmental initiative aimed at collecting and sharing data on existing buildings between 10 and 60 years old. The data is collected from office towers in Australian Central Business Districts (CBDs) and shared on a public website.


For more on this innovative, environmental initiative that provides interactive visualizations of building-performance data to help understand the complexities and relationships among sustainability, health, and energy, read the complete article
