The future might not be motorized: Over the coming decades the challenges of Postcarbon Transition and Climate Change Adaptation will demand a paradigm shift for the organisation of human settlements. This symposium questions the position of the city of Seattle in the global challenge of complete decarbonization until 2050. It will explore the opportunities and challenges that decision makers, creatives and civil society is faced with when taking up this responsibility and will explore first stepping stones to further such a transition.
This symposium features local and international experts sharing their experience in talks and a plenary discussion that is open for public debate, and is in conjunction with the opening weekend of the Futurama Redux: Urban Mobility After Cars And Oil exhibit @ the Center. The event is free of charge and open to the public.
