Scientific Director ETI Chair at University Sorbonne IAE ParisScientific Director Carlos Moreno strives for a revolution of proximities and innovation in this field. He emphasises that we need to rethink our cities’ urban planning to favour economic, ecological, and social value in the proximity and make our cities more sustainable by avoiding long journeys. Radically changing our urban lifestyle and giving greater impetus to the polycentric city is necessary when facing and combating climate change. Multifunctional and multipolar cities need to be the future, offering access to essential local services within a radius of 10-15 minutes by foot or bicycle. Carlos is working towards turning Paris into “The 15-Minute City” and has won the Obel Award 2021 for his work on urban and territorial proximity, amongst many other prizes.
