The Flexible City - Solutions for a Circular and Climate Adaptive Europe (3rd ed)
|Tom Bergevoet;Maarten van Tuijl
All over Europe, cities struggle with an accumulation of environmental crises like global warming, the depletion of natural recourses, pollution and the extinction of species. If we want to keep our cities liveable, we have to make them circular and climate adaptive. This book presents a toolbox with which circularity and climate adaptation can be implemented successfully. Based on existing local qualities, the proactivity of users and a step-by-step approach, a method is presented in this book that is tailored to the European situation, with its democratic tradition, the ways heritage is acknowledged, and how it moves along with the unpredictability of economic tides. With the help of a network of local reporters, authors Tom Bergevoet and Maarten van Tuijl compare European cities, identify similarities and trends and describe tools and successful examples in detail.
