Resilient Post-Carbon Futures ‘From Below’
A one year project to critically evaluate programs of action around the world involving urban communities, at a local, precinct or city level, intended to bring about rapid societal transformation – from ‘below’.
Will also involve a detailed evaluation of the VEIL Eco-Acupuncture project with a focus on understanding its impact relative to the other international examples evaluated; to understand what worked and what did not, and to refine it process and practice. Then to develop a synthesis in order to extend research and action programs of the University aimed at catalysing and monitoring urban transformations related to climate and peak oil – ‘from below’.
