Kyoto

In the attempt to provide feasible options of concrete actions the 2030 vision of Kyoto is a co-creation with citizens that is compatible with the 1.5-degree target of the Paris Agreement. The project finds that with the low-carbon lifestyle options Kyoto can reduce the current production of 7 tons of carbon equivalent per capita per year to 4.2 tons in 2030. With a transformative shift at multiple levels this number have the potential to reach the target of 2.5 tons!

I have been practicing cardboard composting on my balcony. The garbage is returned to the soil and I am able to use it to grow garden vegetables. I am enjoying such circulation of life.

Traditional architecture and cityscape, cuisine, unique culture, and public transport network describes the vision of Kyoto in 2030. Reducing the average carbon footprint will happen by replacing car use with bicycle and public transportation; installing renewable energy supply; building zero energy houses; and reducing red meat consumption by 85%.

The ambition of this project is to both encourage citizens to make environmentally friendly choices in their everyday life and to urge other stakeholders such as governments and businesses to make such choices possible by enabling and make available the necessary means.

Eco Promotion Committee members gather to cut weeds and make humus at a Kyoto elementary school: “This is a long-term initiative to reduce the amount of burnable garbage and use the resulting humus to grow vegetables that can be used as food.

Through the household experiments the participants were inspired to find sustainable and new practices while staying true to traditions of restoration and preservation. Some participants also expressed how they were inspired to bring their newfound knowledge of 1.5-degree lifestyles and raise awareness across various generations in their communities.

The workshop also made me realize the importance of passing on the message to children, and that the parents' generation has an obligation to make efforts to leave a good environment for their children.
