It Urges a regeneration
The global urban population is growing at two people per second, adding 172,800 new city-dwellers each day. The result is ghettoised cities in which walls and gates become the norm as communities, often in close physical proximity, vie to exclude the other. It urges a regeneration, helping cities around the world to become more resilient to the physical, social, and economic challenges with a transition to the circular economy, applying the concepts of reducing, recycling and reusing.
This is the issue addressed in the reCity, a master degree created to design innovative visions supporting communities, stakeholders and political leaders towards more smart and sustainable cities, i.e. circular city.
