Sweden is one of the top 5 countries to reach the Agenda2030. We are in the forefront of developing new systems and fixing older ones. For example; sustainable cities and climate positive energy usage. At the same time climate change forces us all to reconsider how we define “urban areas” and “energy all the time”. To reach the global goals we need to transform everything we know. We have done it before and we can do it again – remember how some people was convinced that the earth was flat and had to change their conception of life? The question is; how fast can we change this time? And do we have answers on what actually needs to be done in rethinking city planning and energy for everyone all the time? Could Effective Altruism be a way?
