Climate solutions in a time of pandemic

We have the winners

First place

1st Place

In the first place, we are pooling three proposals on biking in London:

JLondon (Travel and Transport)

Planeteers (Travel and Transport)

Social Movements (Travel and Transport)

“Because of topic but also delivery, research and content, we have chosen three cycling submissions as winners. The submissions were very well prepared, detailed, analytical with compelling graphics and proof points. Clearly complementary, we would like to see the groups come together to collaborate on a more comprehensive and impactful programme. The JLondon team has gone into greater depth and understanding regarding the needs of female cyclists and also the fundamental development of support groups whereas Social Movements has strongly explored the possibilities of shifting cycling in London to everyone, everything, everywhere. The Planeteers offer a powerful behavioural perspective combined with imaginative ways of engaging local communities to underpin infrastructure. In today’s world, due to the decade of action needed to curtail climate change alongside health impacts, collaboration and amplification of a variety of projects for scale and replicability is key. Together these projects will have greater impact in London and most importantly, if co-created, could be applied to other urban environments across the globe.”

Replete the Street for Urbanisation, Greenspace, Health and Wellbeing

View the project

“Urban habits were forced to change during lockdown, and one of the results has been less traffic and an increase in community and neighbourhood. As lockdown eases there is an opportunity to retain some of beneficial aspects of these changes, and this proposal seeks to maintain quieter, more social streets as spaces for greater community interaction. The proposal is well thought through with details as to how Street Plans may be integrated into wider local plans, and how digital platforms could be used to ensure that the Plans were democratically created through community consultation. The proposal is clearly feasible and presents a vision of urban life in the future that will be attractive to many people, although it is not clear that others would be prepared to restrict the parking and use of motor vehicles that the proposal envisages.”

KTS Hacks for Food Systems and Supply Chains

View the project

“The submission made by KTS Hacks shows an innovative use of blockchain which could provide producers with wider access to the market and increase sale of locally produced goods. It was chosen for its potential to deliver societal benefits at scale including significant reductions in carbon emissions and food-waste. The digital platform using blockchain has the potential for bringing members of a community closer together with local producers, shopkeepers and home delivery companies taking the concept of a local Farmers Markets to a new virtual level of farm production sold and delivered direct to consumer as well as through local retail channels. Improvements could be made where assumptions on counter-party risk and start-up costs were overly optimistic.”
