COP 19 conference: a key step in the fight against climate change | Sustainable imagination | Scoop.it

Sea levels and air temperatures continue to rise according to studies, which is expected to lead to more floods and worse heat waves. To help prevent this, the 19th UN Climate Conference takes place this month to discuss how to curb carbon emissions after 2020, including key steps towards a new globally binding agreement by 2015. Check out the infographic on climate change for more information.

"The world's population is predicted to reach 9 billion people by 2050, and they will all need food, water, and energy to survive. Our current growth patterns are highly inefficient and stand in the way of truly sustainable development. The way forward is inclusive green growth that is clean in its treatment of the environment, efficient in its use of natural resources, resilient, and meets the needs of all people."

"The Bosco Verticale is a system that optimizes, recuperates, and produces energy. Covered in plant life, the building aids in balancing the microclimate and in filtering the dust particles contained in the urban environment. Milan is one of the most polluted cities in Europe. The diversity of the plants and their characteristics produce humidity, absorb CO2 and dust particles, producing oxygen and protect the building from radiation and acoustic pollution. This not only improves the quality of living spaces, but gives way to dramatic energy savings year round."

Transitioning to an Economy of Reuse

Transitioning to an Economy of Reuse | Sustainable imagination | Scoop.it

"We have wound up with a culture that has fashioned itself in the image of disposal instead of retention. Almost everything that we own has a useful life that ends when something breaks because the cost to repair it is a vast percentage of the cost of simply buying a newer, cutting-edge replacement"
