By: Hall, Peter.
Landry, Charles | European Foundation Centre.
ISBN: 9282680460.Publisher: Luxembourg : Office for Official Publications of the European Communities, 1997Description: 112 p.Summary: This is the final report in the Foundation's study on Urban Innovations. Its task is to judge the value of a range of innovative projects in cities, those identified by the Foundation in its European overview on urban innovations and also those presented by governments at the UN Summit of Cities, HABITAT II. It is hoped that decision-makers will find this report helpful in judging alternative projects to implement. To meet the challenge of sustainability in a globalising world, cities need to be creative, open and flexible; they must harness the power of technology and make coalitions with all areas of society. An environmentally sound, economically productive and socially integrated city cannot be achieved without new visions, actions and policies. (Font: Editor)
