Value description

Brno is aware of the great material and energy demands of the operation and development of the city. It supports the use and circulation of materials and nutrients in the city for as long as possible in the highest quality and their return to circulation. It creates closed cycles that eliminate waste streams and create, for example, new jobs in sustainable development areas. Closed cycles of materials and nutrients help the city become self-sufficient and less dependent on external change.

Contribution to the city

Maximum possible use of materials within the city brings self-sufficiency to the city, development of local economy, creation of new jobs and, in particular, the creation of a healthy space to which the residents of the city are actively involved. The city, businesses and individuals perceive waste as resources, eliminating its creation and reducing the costs that can be spent on developing the city according to the citizens' preferences.

Myslím, že by bylo vhodné více motivovat občany k tídění odpadů, velice mi v Brně chybí např. hnědé kontejnery.
Contribution to the city

Contribution to the city
Velkým přínosem by podle mě bylo, kdyby musela každá nová budova automaticky mít tzv. zelenou střechu. Skvěle to funguje v Dánsku: http://en.klimatilpasning.dk/media/704006/1017_sJ43Q6DDyY.pdf Takové střechy nejen že pročišťují městský vzduch, ale zároveň mohou skvěle sloužit k tzv. urban farming a vytvořit několik nových prac. míst.
