Why do we fear failure?

Sustainability is an iterative process. There are no shortcuts. But in a world focussed on success, we often hide from our mistakes.

Recognising this, Gerald Babel-Sutter set out to unite urban change-makers in an environment where they could confidently share their pitfalls, problems, and brick walls.

The idea caught on. What started out as a workshop for around 50 people quickly grew into a full-blown conference – and stories of prominent eff-ups are a real mainstay.

But in an increasingly digital world, where travel only adds to the environmental problems that sustainability initiatives are trying to solve, what place is there still for in-person events?

Featuring: Gerald Babel-Sutter and Maria Vassilakou.

Produced by Mariano Trevino, narrated by Karl Dickinson.
