Revising Bedzed

bedzed

Bedzed is the case study we have used to show how an urban area can be sustainable. This is what you need to know for the exam ….

  • The characteristics of a sustainable city
  • Environmental: the importance of conserving historical and natural features, using brownfield sites, providing open spaces, reducing and disposing of waste
  • Social: including local people in decision making, providing an efficient public transport system
  • Economy: Including how local businesses are helped by this development

This powerpoint on the egan wheel gives you an idea of what makes an urban area sustainable. It is a bit vague, but if you can explain why each feature of this Egan Wheel is sustainable you will be doing  very well EGAN WHEEL

This powerpoint is a couple of years old now and is in an earlier post from 2011. It gives great place specific information (which will help you get a higher mark) as well as explaining how some of Bedzed’s features are sustainable. bedzed powerpoint
