@ The Whisky Bond

Cities are made up of overlapping material flows. At a time of rapid urbanisation, these flows are getting ever faster, denser and more complex. The construction industry accounts for 38% of total global emissions. Waste, water and air-borne pollution exacerbate existing spatial and social injustices and store up environmental problems for generations to come. In this context, it is increasingly urgent that we radically reassess how we relate to the material world: how we extract, process, distribute and dispose. Can we disrupt or re-imagine these flows to create healthier, more resilient, more just cities?

Glasgow Tool Library

BY CHRISTOPHER STRACHAN
@ VOL 37 ON JUN 12, 2019

The Glasgow Tool Library is a social enterprise that operates like a normal library, but instead of sharing books we share tools. We collect donations of tools from those that no longer use them, repair and care for them, and make them accessible to everyone through a pay-what-you-can membership. By creating a communal resource and community-run library,
we aim to challenge unsustainable relationships between use and ownership, promoting a more collaborative economy and society.
