BY THE YEAR 2020, it’s estimated that 4.3 billion people will live in cities. This will have a profound effect on urban development, all over the world, and we have the responsibility to address the sustainability-related challenges with a global view and many different, local perspectives. Planning the cities and communities we hope to live in is the core of this exciting journey, towards a vibrant and dynamic future in which the fate of humanity is in the balance.
At a time when an increasing share of the global population is living in urban areas, there is a need to re-examine the role(s), which cities take in coping with today’s challenges and contradictions.
