Livable cities and localization go hand in hand. The desire to make it possible for goods and people to travel ever-greater distances in and across cities contributes to the climate crisis, pollution, road crashes, inflation, and many other local and global crises. The antidote is to reduce the need for goods and people to travel far, and then focus on creating wonderful neighbourhoods that reward people for living a more local life.
In that spirit, HealthBridge is pleased to be part of the upcoming Planet Local Summit being organized by Local Futures in Bristol from 29 September through 1 October. While the event will take place in Bristol, there are also free livestream options.
Our Senior Advisor, Debra Efroymson, will be participating in three events at the summit: a session on carfree cities on the 29th, a breakout session on Global to Local Movement-Building on the 30th, and a plenary on Movement Building on the 1st.
