Whole Systems Approach
We need to adopt a whole systems approach that considers 100% renewable heat, power, transport and resilient and adapted communities. Thinking in a joined up way with communities and their interests at the centre. For example, as we deploy active travel infrastructure such as the Glasgow Avenues programme, we should be including district heating for communities in the works package. We should also be building in the adaptation solutions too. Also planting more trees for our urban and rural canopy. This creates jobs and improves health and well being and affordable heat for local residents and businesses. We get more value and green recovery this way.
Why the contribution is important
Because it adds value to already planned and future projects if we get beyond silo thinking and create collaboration between plans and projects. Green and at scale infrastructure creates jobs. Local solutions can empower communities. Responds more powerfully and quickly to the time critical climate crisis.
