Calling all engineers, scientists, artists and poets
In this episode, journalist Laurence Garcia meets futurologist Georges Amar who specialises in transport issues. This researcher at Paris engineering school École des Mines has published several books including Homo Mobilis, the new era of mobility. Together they look at how futurology can be used to imagine a more sustainable and mutually beneficial future. Georges Amar says that we need to urgently develop more minimalist 'neighbourhood cities' to support mobility and put an end to the 'further and faster' mentality. In this interview, this eminent future analyst calls on collective intelligence from engineers, scientists, artists and poets in order to reinvent an urban model without social divides or environmental damage.
