People, planet and profit - connecting local to global

In the run up to Bristol European Green Capital 2015, we are pleased to present Dr Peter Head CBE FREng FRSA who will give the Cabot Institute Annual Lecture 2014.

This prestigious event in the Great Hall will see Peter describe his ground breaking work in integrating global and local economic, human and ecological information in a systems model available to everyone in a region. He will describe how this can be used to inform and test local decisions and draw through finance for the inclusive, resilient, sustainable development of a city or a whole region, including agriculture, forestry and marine management.

His easy-to-use model integrating many sources of relevant information creates what he calls "collaborative intelligence" to enable planners and policy makers to decide what investments to make and projects to build, in what order and with what combination of public and private capital - better decisions sooner for people, planet and profit, for communities, the environment and for business in the short and long term. Not only does it have huge application for the developing world but also for the great cluster of financial and professional service providers in the UK who work all over the world in this space. It can help humankind create "collaborative consciousness" to achieve the change that will improve our resilience to the uncertainties of the future, notably climate change and increasing food and water demand for the growing population which will become increasingly urban and middle class.
