By 2050, about one in three people globally will live in a city. How can we make urban change sustainable and fair? How can we ensure a high quality of life in cities for everyone? How do we create an urban commons together? The city of tomorrow needs new concepts of participation which promote the creative competence of all people, the aim for sustainability and focus‘ on the needs of disadvantaged residents.
Syncity took on the challenge and offers an innovative way to make urban planning sustainability driven and stakeholder-inclusive. Originally starting out as a collaborative research project in Cureghem Beligum, Syncity has now evolved into a practical approach, by developing a toolbox for all those who want to help shape just and green cities. The toolbox itself is comprised of a handbook and eleven method cards, with step by step guides and practical instructions on how to make transformations more sustainable and inclusive.
