Urbanization is one of the major trends of the 21st Century. For the first time ever in 2008, more people lived in urban settlements than in rural areas. This trend is likely to continue, by 2030 it is expected that 60 percent of the world’s population live in cities.

Urbanization has serious environmental impacts and calls for innovative solutions. This blog aims to gather information on these issues and to show what ideas and projects are implemented worldwide to master the challenges. The blog will focus on three main categories: Urban Agriculture that can roughly be defined as “the practice of cultivating, processing and distributing food in, or around (peri-urban)” settlements; Urban Environment includes general environmental issues such as recycling, pollution or energy consumption and Urban Biodiversity relates to the flora and fauna (e.g. foxes) in urban areas and their protection.

I’m always keen to learn more about what’s going on. So if you know any projects/ideas/initiatives/organizations etc. that you think would be interesting for the blog. Please contact me: gcc[at]
