We are at a turning point in history. Climate Change and loss of Biodiversity threaten the very stability of the planet’s ecology and our modern society. As we seek convenience and affordability in every facet of our lives, we ignore the impacts that our decisions make on the environment. The problem starts in cities. As cities become the most populated places on the planet, with over 50% of the world’s population living in them, they have become the place where the climate battle will be won. 

Here how we will do that. Nature-based solutions. These are solutions where the sustainable management and use of nature is employed for tackling socio-environmental challenges. However, as cities continue to adopt a general governance style, creating rules and regulations for the entire city, progress has been stalled. This is because the lack of specificity of policies has led to ignorance, as city councils fail to meet the needs of specific social, economic and ethnic communities. Because of this, nature-based solutions will fail to be impelemented. 

The London City Council is a perfect example. Failing to meet the needs of communities all across London, the city council is failing to have an impact on shifting people’s lifestyles and habits to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly. We must take action, and I believe that making a People’s commission in the city council of London will have a meaningful impact as people will finally have a voice and London will be able to be more decisive on serious climate issues which threaten the future of the planet.

Thank you,

Ludovico Mazzocchi
