Abstract (in English)

On our 21th century´s urban planet with more than a half of the population being urban, in a world of interwoven financial, ecologic and social crises such challenges gain the highest possible relevance. Solutions of how to develop adaptive capacity to hyperurbanisation, environmental degradation, globalisation, social turmoil and resource scarcity seem to be crucial issues for ensuring our survival. The built environment professions, including landscape architecture as the bridge between those disciplines, are most responsible instances to offer innovative and sustainable solutions of how to design, plan and manage cities. By thematizing adaptive capacity of cities and their character as complex conglomerates of social, ecologic and economic spheres, this issue of the IFLA Europe Journal aims to offer responds on how developing adaptive capacity should influence the way we think, imagine and design our cities. Can adaptive capacity help to mitigate the fatal projections and to create more resilient places? In this Issue of our Journal we have contribution from across Europe submitted by colleagues with different professional specializations and backgrounds - which also says a lot about the international land interdisciplinary character of the topic.
