What links pedestrian crossings in Chicago, USA, with the Sydney Opera House in Australia?
Sascha Haselmayer’s surprising story provides an unexpected answer to this unusual question, and it’s led to positive change in more than 130 cities around the world.
It may sound counter-intuitive, but in this edition of the CityChangers Podcast, Sascha explains why we should embrace red tape and presents a case for taking a slow approach to sustainability because quick fixes consistently fail.
Change-makers can’t afford to sacrifice inclusion, participation, and sustainability for the sake of doing half a job at speed. So tune in and learn why creating better cities is a marathon, not a sprint.
Featuring: Sascha Haselmayer, author of The Slow Lane & partner at Ashoka Germany.
Produced by Mariano Trevino, narrated by Karl Dickinson.
