Who would have thought that the World’s Best City is a small French village? At least, this is what Rob Hopkins, founder of the “Cities in Change” movement believes. “Quest ce qu’on attend” tells the story of the 2,200 residents from a small town in Alsace that dislodged Big Oil and decided to drastically reduce its ecological footprint. In 2009, the municipality of Ungersheim launched a democratic-participatory program called, “21 acts for the 21st century”. It encompassed all aspects of daily life: nutrition, energy, transport, habitation, money, employment and education. Since 2005, the municipality has saved 120,000 euros in operating costs and has reduced its direct greenhouse gas emissions by 600 tonnes per year. Additionally, around 100 jobs have been created and taxes have not been increased. What are we waiting for?
