Release of “Global Dialogue – Sustainability Without Borders” Report
Geneva Debate 2022
24 February 2022
Peter Droege was panelist at Geneva Debate 2022, an online event which explored the question of ‘How to Draw an Ecological Line: Roadmaps for Ecological Urban Realms’.
With the Ecological Transition as the only vital project with regard to the multiple facets of the climate emergency (biodiversity, food, migration, construction, consumption) it is time for the project professions to revisit their fundamentals in order to judge their relevance, to reconstruct the narrative of their own legitimacy, their methodological framework and their anticipated objectives.
The Braillard Architects Foundation asked experts at its Transition Workshop about the conditions for this necessary disciplinary renewal.
Call for climate peace diplomacy
Where is the outcry against the fossil world war that has been smoldering for decades and is escalating every day? Peter Droege, with EUROSOLAR is calling for a new international security policy, with the support of forum Nachhaltig Wirtschaften.
The world is locked in a myriad of armed hostilities – the causes of which are increasingly attributed to global warming and the securing of non-renewable energy resources.

New LISD Publication: Urban Energy Transition – Renewable Strategies for Cities and Regions, 2nd Edition
Urban Energy Transition, 2nd edition, is the definitive science and practice-based compendium of energy transformations in the global urban system. This volume is a timely and rich resource for all, as citizens, companies and their communities, from remote villages to megacities and metropolitan regions, rapidly move away from fossil fuel and nuclear power, to renewable energy as civic infrastructure investment, source of revenue and prosperity, and existential resilience strategy.
“An excellent and timely resource for practice, policy, teaching and research. This a fresh and sweeping, rigorously scientific and yet extraordinarily applied and practical look at a rising global phenomenon: renewable energy for cities and regions. Beautifully illustrated in full colour, this instills great optimism for this rapidly urbanizing planet, still all too dependent of fossil fuel, and therefore precariously slipping towards climate calamity.“ Elsevier Verified Reviewer.
