Planning for Urban Sustainability (PLUS)

The planning of urbanization at all scales, related to infrastructures, everyday life, and the reciprocities between urban settlements and their rural hinterlands, stands as an increasingly important research agenda, not least because of the increased urbanization and the climate crisis. It is expected that by 2030 there will be around 5 billion people living in urban settlements. Such settlements are hubs for innovation, trade, research, production and consumption and provide the best opportunity for transition towards sustainable development, not least because of the opportunity to create common sustainable systems and infrastructures.  Building on an interdisciplinary approach to urbanization processes, the Planning for Urban Sustainability Group (PLUS) will provide a common forum to develop thinking across silos pertaining to both research and planning practices. The fundamental aim of the group is to establish AAU as a knowledge hub for promoting new integrated urban planning practices for sustainable urban development.
