What it means to be sustainable - Ideas Lab Podcast

Aug 28, 2013, 09:47 AM

We can recycle our bottles and cans, use public transport and buy locally sourced food, but the environmental impact of our lifestyle will always be strongly influenced by where we live. Dr Yan Wong hosts a panel of experts to discuss what it means to be sustainable. Where do we start to tackle such a global issue, when the responsibility lies with everyone? What is the effect of more and more people living in cities? Are we adapting fast enough?

Joining Yan on the panel is Nick Grayson, Climate Change and Sustainability Manager for Birmingham City Council, and from the University of Birmingham Dr Nicole Metje, Senior Lecturer in the School of Civil Engineering, Dr Caroline Chapain from Birmingham Business School, and Ben Cowan from the Human Computer Interaction Centre.
