Crowdsourcing the eco-district of Lausanne Blécherette: consumption

On september 10, another crowdsourcing session has taken place in Lausanne. This time, the theme was « consuming »: shops, energy, water, wastes. Here is a list of the wishes that came out during the session:

Small independent shops rather than big chain suburban supermarkets (Most of people had few hopes that this would have been possible, the suburban model being seen as unavoidable).

– A farmers market and a flea market.

– shops open late at night.

– Finding a way to give a second life to used products still in good state (cradle-to-cradle).

– Encouraging (or even imposing) energy savings:
– bonus-malus policies
– laws forbidding unnecessary wastes
– make energy and wastes lifecycles visible

The whole session report (in French) is available here.

Little by little, from these sessions (here is the previous one), something is emerging: there is a class of people which feels neglected by the actual market. They want a small-scale walkable city, with:

-urban, small houses, located in a vibrant, pedestrian oriented space,

-small, independent (but open 24/7) shops which can serve different needs (vegetarian, organic, local) and work as real third places,

-less energy wastes and more community.

Next crowdsourcing session (« Moving ») on September 25, 20h00, espace Riponne, Rue du Valentin 4, Lausanne.
