📺 Welcome to the Circular Metabolism podcast 📺. This podcast is hosted by Aristide Athanassiadis from Metabolism of Cities. In this podcast we talk with researchers, policy makers and practitioners to understand what makes urban metabolism and economies more circular.
On this episode, I am very excited to speak with Julia Steinberger who is a Professor of Societal Challenges of Climate Change at the Université de Lausanne. After earning her PhD in MIT on ultracold hydrogen, she came back to Lausanne and Zürich to do postdoc fellowships before joining the Klagenfurt Institute of Social Ecology in 2007. In 2011, Julia became Associate Professor in Ecological Economics at the University of Leeds on Industrial, before returning last August in Université de Lausanne becoming a full professor. Julia researches and has largely published on the relationship between human needs and well-being on the one side and their associated resource and pollution requirements. More notably she is a lead author for the IPCC and is leading a project called Living Well within Limits. Finally, I think is fair to say that aside from research, Julia is a seasoned activist on environmental and societal subjects.
On this episode we talk about how to live well within limits, on how affluence is the strongest determinants of global impacts, what are some radical approaches to get out from the current mess and what are some strategies the reduce the environmental impact of cities.
