in: 03 the future of Urban Development

One of the aims of spatial planning is to achieve compact and multifunctional city structures as part of an effort to limit urban sprawl and slow the steady increase in demand for transport. To be effective new tools for urban development and land-use planning are needed which go beyond traditional planning regulations. These could include encouraging professional stakeholders to broaden their development portfolios and influencing choices through information campaigns aimed at potential house buyers. more....

in: 03 the future of Urban Development

The world is rapidly urbanising. It is estimated that, within a generation, the majority of the developing world's population will live in urban areas. This means that the existing urban population of the world - which is currently approximately 2.5 billion - will double within a generation. At the same time, political and fiscal decentralisation is underway in all regions, with the result that, as cities are growing in size, they are also gaining more and more political and economic influence.more....

in: 03 the future of Urban Development

In the European Union about 80 % of the population lives in cities and towns and the urban areas are therefore the places where the problems of the environment touch most the quality of life of citizens.

The report identifies the challenge of urban sustainability to : "solve both the problems experienced within cities and the problems caused by cities, recognising that cities themselves provide many potential solutions. City managers must seek to meet the social and economic needs of urban residents while respecting local, regional and global natural systems, solving problems locally where possible, rather than shifting them to other spatial locations or passing them on to the future".

Transparency because the equipment is invisible and integrated into the background of the user's surroundings. Intelligence because the system is able to recognize the people that live in it, adapt itself to them, learn from their behaviour, and even show emotion.more....

in: 10 the future of the Knowledge Society

In the so-called knowledge economy, intellectual assets have become the most important factor in determining the value of an organisation. Many activities nowadays focus on discovering the Holy Grail of knowledge management: the value of knowledge and the added value of knowledge management. Prominent work in this area includes that done by Sveiby and Edvinsson. However, so far it has been difficult to develop quantitative measures that relate knowledge to the economic value of an organisation. more....
