Sustainability Challenges in Cities
Planning for the Future
For our first interview, we talk with Georgia Tech professor Subhrajit Guhathakurta about sustainability challenges in cities. Looking at the United Nation’s sustainable development goals, Guhathakurta briefly touched on a lecture he gave in 2012 on dealing with a crisis in the face of climate change and sustainability. In the lecture, he presented a framework for planning in such a situation.
“There are ways that sustainability outcomes can be achieved, but we have to go about that in a much more deliberate way and use all the tools at our disposal to make sure that we get the outcome we would like,” he said. “Rather than the outcome we would not [like].”
