Today's video: Re-Thinking Progress: The Circular Economy

A video I found thanks to Cesar Reyes Najera of dpr-barcelona: Re-Thinking Progress: The Circular Economy.
What is it about?
'Re-Thinking Progress' explores how through a change in perspective we can re-design the way our economy works — designing products that can be 'made to be made again' and powering the system with renewable energy. It questions whether with creativity and innovation we can build a restorative economy.

Let's change "restorative economy" into "adaptive and livable city". Anyway why did I post this video? This reminds me a discussion I had with urban planner Malgorzata Hanzl (in Urbanism, a Facebook group) upon the future of designing city a (or two I don't remember) week ago. She concluded with a great sense of realism that we really need to re-think the way of we design cities, buildings, etc. for our residents. But watch this video…
