Post‐Carbon Cities of Tomorrow (POCACITO)

pocacito.eu
The project POCACITO focused on uncovering how to improve the resilience of cities and regions in order to reduce existing and emerging conflicts over resources and their use in light of societal mega‐trends, environmental deterioration and climate change. It developed an evidence‐based 2050 roadmap for EU post‐carbon cities and thus supported the transition process to a post‐carbon economy occurring in cities and towns, ranging from megacities to metropolitan areas and urban agglomerations larger than 1 million people as well as small and medium‐sized cities. The website which was designed and created by Ecologic Institute serves as the central platform for collaborative writing. The internal area provides access to current drafts, discussions and a list of all partners working on a project. The website houses the dissemination and offers an overview and detailed fact sheets about case studies and post-carbon cities.Read more
