The every day consumption of goods and services is supported by the uninterrupted and ever increasing stream of energy and material flows through our cities. These flows ensure that society satisfies individual needs and desires but they also cause global environmental impacts. This calls for a major change in our relationship with resources and energy. A change that will affect the way we consume, manage and recover resources in urban areas. In this lecture Prof. Christopher Kennedy will guide us through the future of our "Cities in a low carbon world".
