What would a Green New Deal look like?

This livestream hosted by Justin Roczniak explores ideas for the revitalisation of Carlingdon-by-Sea, a fictional Northern town modelled for TWT using the urban planning simulation game Cities: Skylines. As a panel of academics and community activists give pre-recorded lectures and take part in a live Q&A, the changes they propose will be simulated in the game.

A collaboration between TWT, Open House Festival and Labour for a Green New Deal.

Speakers:

Justin Roczniak hosts Well There's Your Problem, a podcast about engineering disasters, and produces the YouTube channel donoteat, which explores urban design issues and history through the medium of Cities:Skylines.
