In the middle of crises caused by climate change, energy issues and low growth, there is a growing trend towards the
transition intoa new ecological civilization where the environment, economy and society co-exist in harmony.
We will share multiple cases at home and abroad of businesses making efforts for the co-existence of the environment and
and people while creating economic values, present directions for ‘Seoul, the city of transition for 2050’ and discuss challenges.
At the time of crisis, futuristic experiments get an opportunity to demonstrate themselves.
In the middle of climate emergency and the COVID-19 pandemic, local and community-based experiments
for developing a local circular economy show the possibility of new topographic features in a city.
In this session, we will introduce practical case in the social and economic sectors of the transition
town where the blinds of a local circular economy are sprouting and will look at how the
possibility of a local circular economy can be expanded and grown.
In this session, the process and output of the project called ‘Transition for tomorrow, practice transition at our daily lives for 21 days’will be shared.
The Project was participated by 1,775 citizens for 21 days from October 15 to November 4.
More specifically, participants will share insights and changes that they had while practicing transition in eight areas including vegetarian diet,
zero waste and climate emergency policies,along with their ‘one-line declaration’.
There will be open discussion with active citizens saying “I’m sure this will be done since I do it” instead of “Can this be done because I, just one person, do it?”
‘Cities’ where citizens live and work have been important places for transformation.
How cities around the world have been dealing with the recent pandemic provides us an opportunity to see what kind of radical practices a city government can implement during the process of transition.
In this session, we will learn the roles of a city government which have become even more important
in the middle of pandemic and how inter-city cooperation can be reorganized when physical exchanges
areblocked,based on the transition policy roadmap and case studies of cities including Helsinki and Paris.
