Straw goes Urban: join the discussion
We`d like to start a discussion, what is necessary, to build urban projects in a sustainable way, not just reducing energy-consumption or CO2, lets also think about social-, material-, agricultural-, renewable-, prefab-, community-matters. What are your ideas for a liveable city? Is sustainable urbanism more than building comunicative/participative places and passive-houses in a city? Is bringing the nature back in towns the big solution (urban gardening, vertical gardens, greening public spaces)?
It´s a big theme, we know, it includes the future of democracy, the way we want to live together in a healthy surrounding, the problem of feeding the people in the growing cities, the energy and infrastructure and lot more.
If you like to discuss this topic with us, if you want to send us more best-practice-examples, or just want to follow the discussion, please go to our facebook-site: https://www.facebook.com/strawbaleeurope
