Designing the transition to sustainability: resourcing community resilience

Forthcoming seminars organised by Hamid Van Koten and the Scottish Universities Insight Institute:

Sustainable communities should be at the heart of our shift to a more sustainable future. The UK and Scottish Governments have indicated that they will transition to a low carbon economy based on equitable, resilient and vibrant economic systems. To transform the UK’s infrastructure will require different investment sources and innovative financial mechanisms. Where projects are commercially viable, private financing is likely to be forthcoming. Large scale infrastructure projects may attract public spending support. These two sources of funding, however, will not be sufficient. There is also a need to look at how communities might resource their shift to sustainability and enhance their resilience.

Pop Up Hub Helsinki – London Design in Helsinki

The Pop Up Hub Helsinki is a place where design meets social responsibility. For five consecutive days during the Helsinki Design Week the temporary pop up space will serve as an office, meeting place and a platform for public innovation in Helsinki’s central Market Quarters.

The Pop Up Hub Helsinki is based on the idea of the famous global Hub community; a network of spaces for inspiration and social innovation. The Hubs operate as social enterprises, and they now spread across four continents and 12 cities offering tools, contacts and a platform for people who want to solve global problems. The Hub concept is a cross between a private members club and an office hotel, bringing together people from small and medium sized businesses, NGO’s, funding organisations and civil service.
