Abstract

Comprises output from the Foresight future of cities project looking at the opportunities and challenges facing cities over the next 50 years. Specifically looks at how solutions can be found to complex problems faced by cities by allowing conflicting voices to be heard and by not imposing a single consensus or measure of success. Also considers how these methods affect our understanding of urban resilience, sustainability, adaptability and 'path dependence'.
