Measures to Building a Sustainable Society Based on the Principles of the Green New Deal / In the aspect of reducing inequalities, sustainable cities and communities, and responsible consumption and production
SDGs : SDGs Group 4
The world has entered a period of global crisis- social polarization, climate change, and unsustainable growth. We identified the issue to be aligned with the past generation’s governance systems, which had systematic errors that eventually resulted in a vertically integrated and polarized social structure. The widespread use of fossil fuels, while bringing many economic benefits, has deepened the environmental crisis. In the wake of this matter, we recognized the Green New Deal as a potential solution to growing a sustainable society. In order to reduce inequalities that resulted from the second industrial revolution, we called for a new societal infrastructure that is transparent, distributed and open. These goals can be reached with the utilization of the Internet of Things, which can provide individuals with various resources at a low cost, regardless of his or her environment. In the case of building a sustainable community, we identified three pillars that institute a city: transport, buildings, and agriculture. Decarbonizing these three pillars in the aspect of the Green New Deal can be materialized through the employment of various technologies such as the IoT and renewable energy sources. Lastly, responsible consumption and production can be reached with the employment of Socially Responsible Investing (SRI). Moreover, when the government is in the process of designating firms that will participate in building sustainable infrastructure, it must utilize criteria regarding the principles of ESG (Environment, Society, and Governance).
