"Choosing bad is harder than choosing good" - if you want consumers to support sustainable options, make doing good the easiest option. Most people don't want to actively opt out of something they understand to be good (good for the environment, socially responsible, etc.).

London's new "Walk the Tube" map shows how long it takes to walk between stations. The city wants to improve walking and cycling routes - considering "all the health benefits they bring".

When visiting big cities, getting around on train or subway often seems like the easiest option, but I also enjoy taking a longer, slower (or not, as it seems in some cases in London at least) route to explore the local streets. 
Transport for London has released another alternative version of the Tube map—and it’s actually really useful. The London transport manager has created a ‘Walk the Tube’ map, which shows how long it takes to totter between stations.

Effective way to engage people in #climateaction? Encourage them to consider their own future legacy - appealing to their concerns for future reputations and "a desire to be remembered positively".

Post-Paris Climate Actions: Cities take climate action to local level
Cities have massive carbon footprints, and how they develop is crucial for addressing climate change. The Paris climate summit allowed cities to unify - and post-Paris, cities' collective action is breeding green hopes.

"I buy fewer things of higher quality." - Alden Wicker (http://ecocult.com/)

Great attitude & advice about making informed purchase decisions (even though it's not always easy) and not using 'limited budget' as an excuse for financing unsustainable unethical fast fashion industry.

In addition to green building, transport and other concrete #climateaction steps, promoting what you're doing to become greener is an important part of the sustainability solutions for cities - as it helps attract industries working in green technologies.

A beautiful introduction to what it feels like to experience the local way of life in Japan's ancient capital of Kyoto: "The reason you’ve come all this way is to visit a place that has advanced further than any other in refining the notion that the best way of speaking is by saying nothing at all and the best way of seeing something is leaving a lot to the imagination."

Not just about procrastinating less: "#productivity is useless if what you’re producing isn’t meaningful or helpful to you or others in some way".

I think that the glass is half full, and that the other half is for those who need it most.
Introduction
I like to learn new things, and these days I'm learning a lot about learning, and about how people read, think, and connect with each other. I think that one of the most important ways for us to learn about our world and about ourselves is traveling.
