Success Damage Ratio

Rethinking the Balance Sheet: Lessons from Hong Kong

Is it possible to craft a more sustainable future by thinking differently about how we measure successes and damages? Seven city-savvy Seattleites traveled to Hong Kong to learn more from one of the world’s leading examples of sustainable land use and transportation planning. Hong Kong’s stunning successes on some measures are juxtaposed with some surprising unintended consequences. What can we learn from this? What metrics should we focus on? How can we make choices that take into account the success: damage ratio? Please join the Runstad Center’s Affiliate Fellows from the UW College of Built Environments to share ideas and images from their trip, followed by a discussion about the future of sustainable urbanism in the Pacific Northwest.
