Evolving policy priorities & mindsets

Prof Peter Jones describes how cities have successfully made major changes in the past, and what triggered them.

Meeting carbon reduction targets will require a major change in policy mindsets. In this video, Prof Peter Jones describes how cities have successfully made major changes in the past, and what triggered them.

He stresses the importance of policy perspectives – introducing ‘C’, ‘M’, and ‘P’ mindsets – and how these perspectives have shaped our cities. Through the development of sustainability and carbon-neutral policy strategies, and harnessing imagination, skills and resources, cities can change behaviours to achieve their carbon-neutral goal.
