Global Commons Alliance and their 'Plan For The Planet'

“As climate change and global conflict cause shocks and stresses at faster intervals and increased severity, the 15-minute city will become even more critical.” – World Economic Forum (WEF)

The 15-minute city concept is also being pushed by our esteemed friends at the World Economic Forum:

In the article: The surprising stickiness of the “15-minute city”

They explain what it means: The “15-minute city” concept—which implies having all necessary amenities within a short walk, bike ride, or public transit trip from one’s home—has demonstrated stickiness not just as an idea, but as a powerful tool for action – from Paris to Seoul, from Bogotá to Houston. It was coined in 2016 by Sorbonne professor Carlos Moreno, who won a Nobel Award in 2021.”

According to Deloitte: “The re-zoning model will gain further traction in the future, boosted during the COVID-19 pandemic by new ways of working that require less transport. With climate change as a major global concern, C40 in its C40 Mayors’ Agenda for a Green and Just Recovery has recommended this model for cities worldwide. This is because its pedestrianisation approach contributes to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and supports environmental sustainability. Most notably, the ‘15-minute city’ was popularised in 2019 by Paris and is a flagship initiative in the current programme for the city.”

In many other cities around the UK and the world, this plan is being replicated. Oxford City Council and up to 100 others are working on the same thing.

Cities worldwide are signed up to & following directives from a shady NGO called C40. The chairman of this dictatorship is Sadiq Khan.

Residents haven’t asked to vote on these plans. They are simply being adopted as law & reported in to C40!

There are 97 cities in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, which represents one twelfth of the world’s population and one quarter of the world’s economy. The C40 was created in October 2005 when London Mayor Ken Livingstone convened representatives from 18 megacities to reduce climate pollution together. With the help of former US President Bill Clinton, Mayor Livingstone and the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI) strengthened both organizations in 2006, expanding the network to 40 cities and helping cities deliver projects and project management to reduce emissions.

It was C40 that introduced the 15-minute city concept. It’s a network of mayors from nearly 100 world-leading cities working together to tackle climate change – right now it’s headed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

It’s understood that the COVID-19 pandemic played a significant role in accelerating this shift to 15-minute cities and according to Lisa Chamberlain of the World Economic Forum, “the 15-minute city grew from a “nice-to-have” to a rallying cry.”

Global organizations, such as the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, took notice too. In July 2020, they published a framework for cities to “build back better”, and the 15-minute city concept was at the heart of it.

And who funds It’s a partnership with many companies including the Open Society Foundations, founded in 1993 by George Soros. Other partners include the Welcome Trust, the Clinton Foundation and the World Bank.

In a Twitter thread posted by Frédéric Leroy, he outlined some of the chilling aspects of these so-called C40 Cities. Based on his research, you will own zero private vehicles under the ambitious goal.

He also reports that there are some really powerful people and organizations behind the C40 initiative. Michael Bloomberg is the C40 Board president, and Sadiq Khan is the current chair. C40 is also part of the Global Commons Alliance, a public-private partnership with PlanForThePlanet, the World Economic Forum, Rockefeller Foundation, WBCSD, EAT, Club of Rome, WWF, WRI etc.
