Imagine the future of 21st century urban society: megacities are straining global resources; mega-regions, with regional governments are challenging established political identities; common values towards development and stewardship proliferate worldwide; an ubiquitous internet infrastructure penetrates all walks of life; and the inescapable realities of climate change are an omnipresent part of everyday existence.
This issue looks at land use sustainability from an evolutionary perspective. What are the approaches, methods and tools needed to shape the development of human habitats and ensure their sustainability into an uncertain future?
