Video shows vision of future low emissions cities

A video launching on Thursday shows people that it’s possible to cut Australian cities’ greenhouse gas emission by 80% by 2040, and helps people imagine what a low carbon future city might be like to live in.

The film debuts at the Sustainable Communities National Summit, being hosted by the Municipal Association of Victoria, and has been produced as part of the Visions and Pathways 2040 project.

Dr Seona Candy, a research fellow on the Visions and Pathways 2040 project, said it was an exciting opportunity to share the message of hope and action with local governments from across the country.

“Our research has found that there are numerous ways for Australian cities to dramatically reduce their emissions. It’s really positive to see local and state governments showing leadership on such a critical issue,” Dr Candy said.
