Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At the start of the 21st century, humanity is a predominantly urban species. This special issue is about the future of cities and how urbanisation will develop when based on principles of sustainability. It explores the underlying dimensions of the transformation of existing cities and the design of low carbon green precincts and their urban systems. The view of the papers presented in this special issue are holistic and take questions of social sustainability into account. The aim is to define a new agenda of change for sustainable urban development that can be transferred and replicated in other cities: urban solutions and success stories (case studies) to ensure we are all aware of the possibilities towards 'the urban future we want'.
