thoughts and solutions for the resource revolution

open_resource magazine n°2
Shaping resourceful cities



open_resource magazine is a 6-monthly publication, dedicated to the resource revolution.

A revolution that, much like the industrial revolution in the past, is profoundly changing our lifestyle, our behaviour as consumers and our modes of production. The world is growing, so it is essential, right now, that we adopt a radically new approach, based upon the circular management of our increasingly scarce natural resources.

SUEZ is convinced that innovation, collaboration between players and collective intelligence, are the driving forces behind this change. With this magazine, SUEZ aims to promote the great ideas and solutions proposed by all those who are imagining and conceiving the future of our resources.

“Shaping resourceful cities” is the theme chosen by SUEZ for this second issue. 60% of the world’s population will live in 600 major cities in 2030. These cities must reinvent themselves, if they are to offer sustainable access to resources, efficient services and a good quality of life for their residents. SUEZ is supporting them in this transformation with a new vision of the city. A city that is circular, resilient and collaborative, capable of producing and protecting the resources that it needs to function, in an approach based on co-construction with all the stakeholders. This is what we call the resourceful city.

Let’s be more imaginative and innovative than ever before to shape resourceful cities. And help the resource revolution to progress.
