    Designing the 21st century city (Prof Paola Viganò)

    Designing the 21st century city (Prof Paola Viganò)

    📺 Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast 📺. This podcast is hosted by Aristide Athanassiadis from Metabolism of Cities. In this podcast we interview thinkers, researchers, policy makers and practitioners to better understand the metabolism of our cities and how to reduce their environmental impact in a socially just and context-specific way.
    In this new episode, I wanted to move away from studying economic alternatives, technological solutions and policy measures and get back to an essential question which is how you plan and design cities. In fact, there is a very intimate relationship between the territorial organisation of a city and how they consume resource flows but also how they reuse waste flows as new resources. In other terms I wanted to discuss with one world renowned architect and urbanist, Paola Viganò.
    Paola is the co-founder of the architectural study Studio and Professor in Urban Theory and Urban Design at the EPFL (Lausanne) and at IUAV Venice. Paola, has received numerous awards for her work including the French Grand Prix de l'Urbanisme in 2013, the Gold Medal for Italian Architecture in 2018 and has received the title of Doctor Honoris Causa at the Université Catholique de Louvain (UCL) in 2016. Her Studio has worked on constructing visions for some important metropolitan areas: Le Grand Paris, métropole de l’après Kyoto; Brussels 2040; Lille 2030 and Montpellier 2040. In 2012 Studio was chosen to propose a vision on New Moscow. In her work she has also developed some concepts to rethink cities such as the porous city and the horizontal metropolis. 
    On this episode we talked how architects and urbanists might design 21st. century cities, how they can articulate all pressing challenges into one spatial reconfiguration and how new concepts can help to acceleration transitions.

    Post Growth - Life After Capitalism (Prof. Tim Jackson)

    Post Growth - Life After Capitalism (Prof. Tim Jackson)

    📺 Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast 📺. This podcast is hosted by Aristide Athanassiadis from Metabolism of Cities. In this podcast we interview thinkers, researchers, policy makers and practitioners to better understand the metabolism of our cities and how to reduce their environmental impact in a socially just and context-specific way.
    In the last episodes we explored some alternative societal and economic models such as degrowth, living well within limits, permacircularity and we continue our quest by looking into postgrowth. Today is a special day, I have the pleasure to talk to Tim Jackson about his new book Post Growth – Life After Capitalism!
    Tim is an ecological economist and writer. Since 2016 he has been Director of the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP). He holds degrees in mathematics (MA, Cambridge), philosophy (MA, Uni Western Ontario) and physics (PhD, St Andrews). Tim has been the author of Prosperity Without Growth a book that was highly influential for me 10 years ago when I was exploring the relationship between material flows, GDP and prosperity. Over the last years, he seems to be obsessed with growth, its ills and what we should really focus on in the society of tomorrow.
    His new book title Post Growth which I had the pleasure to ready thanks to the team at Polity is a mix between a history of economy, capitalism, science, and philosophy and a manifesto on how to build the next economy. You can find quotes of the Beatles, Boltzmann, Aristotle, Shakespeare, Stuart Mill and many others in order to better understand what the good life is and what motivates us.
    On this episode we talk about how to what is post growth, what life after capitalism might look like, as well as how the flow state might be a solution to overcome current challenges.

    Living Well within Limits (Prof. Julia Steinberger)

    Living Well within Limits (Prof. Julia Steinberger)

    📺 Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast 📺. This podcast is hosted by Aristide Athanassiadis from Metabolism of Cities. In this podcast we talk with researchers, policy makers and practitioners to understand what makes urban metabolism and economies more circular.
    On this episode, I am very excited to speak with Julia Steinberger who is a Professor of Societal Challenges of Climate Change at the Université de Lausanne. After earning her PhD in MIT on ultracold hydrogen, she came back to Lausanne and Zürich to do postdoc fellowships before joining the Klagenfurt Institute of Social Ecology in 2007. In 2011, Julia became Associate Professor in Ecological Economics at the University of Leeds on Industrial, before returning last August in Université de Lausanne becoming a full professor. Julia researches and has largely published on the relationship between human needs and well-being on the one side and their associated resource and pollution requirements. More notably she is a lead author for the IPCC and is leading a project called Living Well within Limits. Finally, I think is fair to say that aside from research, Julia is a seasoned activist on environmental and societal subjects.
    On this episode we talk about how to live well within limits, on how affluence is the strongest determinants of global impacts, what are some radical approaches to get out from the current mess and what are some strategies the reduce the environmental impact of cities.

    Vers une société permacirculaire (Prof. Dominique Bourg - Université de Lausanne)

    Vers une société permacirculaire (Prof. Dominique Bourg - Université de Lausanne)

    📺 Bienvenu.e au podcast Circular Metabolism 📺.
    Je suis Aristide de Metabolism of Cities. Dans ce podcast nous interviewons des chercheurs, des décideurs politiques et des praticiens pour mieux comprendre le métabolisme de nos villes et comment réduire leur impact environnemental net d’une manière juste et contextualisée.
    Dans cet épisode, j’ai l’honneur de discuter avec Dominique Bourg. Dominique est philosophe et Professeur honoraire de l’Université de Lausanne. Il a pas un mais deux doctorats, trois licences, deux Maîtrises et deux DEA. Il dirige et co dirige plusieurs collection et revues dont la Pensée Ecologique de chez PUF. Il a aussi présidé plusieurs conseils scientifiques de fondations telle que la Fondation Nicolas Hulot et actuellement la Fondation Zoein. Finalement, il s’est également aventuré dans les élections européennes de 2019 en menant la liste « Urgence Ecologie ».
    Je voulais passer un moment avec Dominique aujourd’hui pour discuter de son ouvrage « Ecologie Intégrale – Pour une société permacirculaire » et plus particulièrement de démystifier les concepts d’économie circulaire, d’économie « authentiquement » circulaire et d’économie permacirculaire.

    L'urbanisme circulaire (Sylvain Grisot)

    L'urbanisme circulaire (Sylvain Grisot)

    📺 Bienvenu.e au podcast Circular Metabolism 📺.
    Je suis Aristide de Metabolism of Cities. Dans ce podcast nous interviewons des chercheurs, des décideurs politiques et des praticiens pour mieux comprendre le métabolisme de nos villes et comment réduire leur impact environnemental net d’une manière juste et contextualisée.
    Dans cet épisode, je parle avec Sylvain Grisot. Sylvain est urbaniste et fondateur de dixit.net une agence de conseil d’innovation urbaine. Cela fait plusieurs mois que nous devions nous voir mais n’avons toujours pas eu l’opportunité de le faire. Vu la situation actuelle, un épisode de podcast semble être la manière la plus facile pour discuter de son bouquin « Manifeste pour un urbanisme circulaire. Pour des alternatives concrètes à l’étalement de la ville”.
    Bossant depuis des années sur le concept de rendre les villes et leurs métabolismes plus circulaire, je me suis dis que j’avais une bonne idée de ce que Sylvain allait traiter dans son livre. Mais, je dois avouer que j’étais un peu surpris. Regardez cet épisode jusqu'au bout pour en apprendre plus!
