Entrant‘s description

Berlin-Brandenburg 2070: Principles and Concepts for Regional Planning and Urban Development – ­Redesigning the Urban Agenda
All forms of radical thinking that shape society require radical forms of decision-­making and governmental responsibility. The future of cities has ­never been more at the forefront of global political debate than it is today, when the impact of urban areas on environmental justice and social cohesion is becoming increasingly tangible. The historic opportunity to rethink the concept of the city and to steer the business-as-usual model in a direction that promotes growth, well-being, and sustainability is recognised by visionary politicians worldwide. Yet, few metropolises have committed to long-term change that reshapes the way people will live and interact with their natural habitats for generations to come.
