Résumé
"Urban Planet takes an integrative look at our urban environment, bringing together scholars from a diverse range of disciplines. It provides a much needed cross-scale perspective, connecting challenges and solutions on a local scale with drivers and policy frameworks on a regional and global scale. The authors argue that to overcome the major challenges we are facing, we must embark on a large-scale reinvention of how we live together, grounded in inclusiveness and sustainability"(ed.)
