Detroit: If not cars, then what? | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

"Everything you need, you already have..." "Look at the courage you already have..."  In Detroit, people are rebuilding their city, one person at a time, one block at a time, one community at a time, one industry at a time.


'Lemonade, Detroit'


Thanks Michelle

Si les maires dirigeaient le monde / Could Mayors Rule The World? | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

"Le nouveau livre de Ben Barber, «Si les maires dirigeaient le monde" repose sur l'idée que des trois unités politiques élémentaires - les empires, les nations, et les villes - ce sont les villes qui ont existé depuis le plus longtemps,  et elles représentent aujourd'hui le niveau auquel «les choses se font »...


“If Mayors Ruled the World” is premised on the notion that of the three elemental political units — empires, nations, and cities — it is cities which have existed the longest and cities which today represent the level at which “things get done...”

New York Farm City

In order to show how vegetables are grown in New York, we reversed what the plants do: We harvest in spring what we filmed in fall.

High-tech greenhouse planned for downtown Vancouver parkade rooftop | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

The roof of a city-owned downtown parkade will be converted to a high-tech vertical growing space capable of producing 95 tonnes of fresh vegetables a year.

Vancouver-based Valcent Products has entered into a memorandum of understanding with EasyPark, the corporate manager of the city’s parkades, to build a 6,000-square-foot greenhouse on underutilized space on the roof of the parkade at 535 Richards Street, in the heart of the downtown core.

The Power of 10 « Project for Public Spaces - Placemaking for Communities

The Power of 10 « Project for Public Spaces - Placemaking for Communities | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

The Power of 10 is a concept PPS uses to start off a Placemaking process. The idea is that it’s not enough to have just one great place in a neighborhood- you need a number of them to create a truly lively city or town. It’s not enough to have only one superior neighborhood in a city- you need to provide people all over town with close-to-home opportunities to take pleasure in public life. And, it’s not enough to have one livable city or town in a region- you need a collection of interesting communities.

Sharon Zukin on Authenticity (Polis)

Sharon Zukin on Authenticity (Polis) | ECONOMIES LOCALES VIVANTES | Scoop.it

"Authenticity is nearly always used as a lever of cultural power for a group to claim space and take it away from others without direct confrontation, with the help of the state and elected officials and the persuasion of the media and consumer culture. We can turn this lever in the direction of democracy, however, by creating new forms of public-private stewardship that give residents, workers, and small business owners, as well as buildings and districts, a right to put down roots and remain in place. This would strike a balance between a city's origins and its new beginnings; this would restore a city's soul."
