from One Planet· · 1 listeners

Global markets are failing our planet, according to Europe's Environment Commissioner Janez Potocnik. He tells One Planet that we don't put enough value on our ecosystems, clean water or fresh air, and that a "fundamental rethink" is now needed to keep the world in a sustainable shape. Also on the show we talk about living in the endless city, look at urban growth in Beijing, Lagos and Los Angeles, and take in the view from the top of the Eiffel Tower.
