uh before you lay if you will find it on the uh one of the tables it in the lobby is extremely interesting
00:00:12
and this is an example is is extremely edifying
00:00:17
and for people in of all region this is extremely interesting this is
00:00:21
happening in zurich fourteen municipalities are joining forces all have joined forces
00:00:32
and as i say in zurich is really under a a quite special people
00:00:40
so i will begin with a question for you so we have quite short q. and a session because unfortunately
00:00:47
what we don't have a well isn't just anyway it's time it's moving forward inexorably but
00:00:54
you but if but your presentations works really interesting i want to begin with you
00:00:58
show on how to you
00:01:04
well how did you succeed in bringing together all these interests
00:01:10
two
00:01:12
bring this project to fruition because saying no we don't want construction we don't want a most
00:01:18
way sporting a valley is easy to say now it's within an hour to singer
00:01:23
creating something like this and succeeding in implementing it
00:01:29
with fourteen different municipalities we know what it means to have lots of different responses
00:01:35
what was the crucial elements in six eating this way
00:01:43
uh_huh
00:01:45
so that's the other questions very justified
00:01:50
i'm going to answer in german otherwise i'm going to get lost uh as i read twice yeah
00:01:58
oh please uh grab the headset if you need one
00:02:06
so the composition was very positive all the members were very positive about the project to the presidents of the
00:02:11
municipalities wanted to if a favour the development of the
00:02:17
region and ends in previous caught your life
00:02:20
i know what people i think because i began when i began a project i said
00:02:27
that this is something that can uh take the project forward into the future
00:02:33
so people uh don't have the headsets but remember georgetown was for thirteen years
00:02:40
the the men yeah all the sound because we call them in switzerland
00:02:43
the method of only fourteen municipalities so
00:02:48
it has to be a consensus and at the leadership of these municipalities the conditions
00:02:53
are beginning with good that was a real will to preserve and develop
00:02:58
so there was a good strong basis that was preexisting and favoured this project
00:03:07
i i i i i
00:03:11
so i have chosen to present my projects in a way that makes people understand this
00:03:19
i mean you know people who would be resistance but i prepared for this and this led to very possibly save
00:03:26
results but let's not forget the financial side things by
00:03:31
working together you work more efficiently you work better
00:03:36
for less cost you can have a better results you can have a a project a program that succeeds
00:03:44
and has greater chance of succeeding so do the costs were sixty percent
00:03:49
low uh them a by working together than by working individually
00:03:58
it was important to have someone to have a critical
00:04:02
view this he went to the uh someone who
00:04:07
went to all kinds of groups you would not necessarily be a in imagery supportive the project
00:04:13
so he if was confronted with the different uh points people could make about
00:04:19
the cost of the product i found ways of answering a a
00:04:22
critic criticism in terms of the cost it would uh involved
00:04:30
oh so one final question was the population
00:04:37
infuse yesterday but it was it included in that project was their opinions sorts
00:04:46
the most uh uh and and danger creating a a living space that was not accepted
00:04:52
draw a a what what
00:04:56
was there with creating a kind of intimate uh which is graves
00:04:59
preview a wonderful variable but um it was just a spectacle
00:05:04
how do you how did you create something which is more about sustainable development role
00:05:10
yeah we had an advantage but this should not be an excuse for other regions we had
00:05:14
an exact an advantage because we have a regional newspaper which is hand distributed to every
00:05:21
home twice a week and this allowed me to present a project to people to introduce
00:05:26
these ideas we went to different neighbours to cooperatives who wants it to a renovate
00:05:34
so we spread this information represented our ideas
00:05:38
using examples examples a great motivates us
00:05:45
communication is the crucial elements
00:05:50
so examples of initiatives which have been successful in the past uh we
00:05:55
used and through the local newspaper which is published twice a week
00:06:01
uh they were explanations uh they will uh has information about how things can work to
00:06:09
try and encourage population see the positive side uh and you victoria your project
00:06:18
has the same characteristics the same dimension what is the different characteristics on a different dimension
00:06:22
but is it follows the same spirit and you had to fight to obtain
00:06:28
the opportunity to develop your project and you said it at the start
00:06:34
they were uh there was resistance when it came to try to obtain financing and how
00:06:40
do you get to the point where you all leading at project which is a little bit crazy
00:06:46
and how do you convince enough people to get on board how how did you do that how did it go for you
00:06:52
can you tell us what how this critical a phase took place
00:06:58
which project let's begin with the a stroll house project
00:07:04
well for the straw house
00:07:08
i decided to to set up a bed and breakfast uh banks agrees
00:07:14
to it sets up a agree to find it sets up
00:07:19
and so the one real objectives uh from this point to uh for this project and in terms of
00:07:25
uh the complexity things was the uh current funding side of things
00:07:32
i'm sorry what practical unfairly courses to educate people and
00:07:37
people uh we didn't want to pay for this
00:07:41
and uh for the sustainable development sense uh we had to learn from uh i'll areas
00:07:47
and for the sustainable a development centre is still in the gestation period this is much more complex project
00:07:54
yes it's much more complex between ten and twenty percent
00:08:00
of the project will be caught funded where people can
00:08:05
health i can also work and uh contribute physically to uh the project
00:08:13
and the aim is to uh
00:08:16
uh uh reach a a cluster duration of thirty a french to uh
00:08:22
our uh which is paid in males paid in in kinds of
00:08:27
and this is the way of the uh not having to find financing and i in the long term uh oh
00:08:36
is it not difficult at the scale of several means parties
00:08:40
is it difficult to use volunteering um uh also
00:08:45
paying people in kind for the hours where it is kind of a volunteer assistant to well i
00:08:52
could explain let's in wales before we men if
00:08:57
one point made a small uh wins turbine
00:09:01
i will managed a big pay you the way you incorporated and it
00:09:05
became the biggest one cooperatively to energy producer in the u. k.
00:09:16
and it has raised forty million
00:09:20
euros of funding a corpus of funding and if you
00:09:25
a present examples um effectively to attend services and
00:09:32
you can get somewhere and if you set up those lots of small projects
00:09:37
uh ultimately you can finance a larger projects using
00:09:42
the uh funds generated by the small projects
00:09:47
uh this is not a normal way of operating right now but
00:09:50
we wanted to become normal every once we would like um
00:09:57
in in wales uh the computer systems of the news for lost forty five years
00:10:01
and maybe we where's that little bit more advanced when it comes to the
00:10:05
corporate reports but this is something that could be applied elsewhere to
00:10:11
uh sir charles how often in life is monday the crux of the problem
00:10:21
you have to convince municipalities
00:10:28
see you take part and sometimes the municipalities of uh all prepared
00:10:38
to pull out of these developments because at some point
00:10:42
based c. is big binge too expensive it's a question of money ultimately how
00:10:50
can you uh change um as it
00:10:56
shoots to change the direction of
00:10:59
the way people work when you have people that we have that
00:11:04
areas of land available which can be a become a construct a ball and how
00:11:10
do you switch from one conception of the elements to another
00:11:16
uh one idea don't have a because ultimately though uh there's financial income
00:11:22
yeah
00:11:24
yeah
00:11:27
well
00:11:32
so it was almost a missionary work uh we had to go to different
00:11:37
missus policies we had to promote the idea sometimes i was rejection
00:11:42
uh fifteen years ago people talk about limiting
00:11:49
these initiatives and we are working this way anymore
00:11:53
we learned very quickly that developments of construction
00:12:01
um is generates more tax revenue but the money that comes
00:12:05
into head of uh the population is not as much
00:12:13
so there's a new understanding that enables he was to attract people you are good time space
00:12:24
uh_huh
00:12:27
uh_huh okay zero oh no that i there is
00:12:32
a double up and uh because it's important
00:12:35
to keep 'em on billboards or other than double but yeah there is a physical
00:12:42
a calculation because when we improve the general our life
00:12:47
conditions who he defected to improve the general ah
00:12:54
love life for everyone um the wheel drive to people who
00:12:58
are expecting this uh this level uh huh yeah
00:13:03
uh_huh uh_huh
00:13:09
it's not only the quality of the taxpayer uh are
00:13:16
we yeah yeah yeah we'll doing more
00:13:20
attracting more people main is actually a vicious circle because we need to build
00:13:26
more and we get more taxes and we need to build more
00:13:33
so i actually per capita yeah there is less ah a text
00:13:40
and more building generate
00:13:43
or a negative aspects so basically what you've a danger
00:13:49
on the on the one hand
00:13:50
we lost on the other hand
00:13:53
so for the financial point of view it's it's pretty that but uh
00:13:57
in terms of quality of life uh again it's less is more
00:14:04
few minutes for a has some questions for where would like
00:14:11
or is his or her hand
00:14:16
or
00:14:18
uh_huh
00:14:21
uh_huh
00:14:24
uh_huh uh_huh is the straw has a positive in terms of energy
00:14:32
yes it would uh produces nine thousand eight hundred care what's
00:14:44
and we use twelve hundred for the heating
00:14:48
our uh of the building and hardcore
00:14:53
so it's a six types uh_huh
00:14:58
uh_huh
00:15:03
uh_huh our well thank you very much
