New White Paper from Peter Calthorpe: 7 Strategies for Sustainable Urban Planning
As our global population scales to what could one day reach 10 billion people, a new vision of community, prosperity, and urbanism is long overdue. The built environment of our cities will play a critical role in securing an environmentally responsible, socially equitable, and economically strong future for our communities.
Urban planners are central to the solution, yet we struggle to overcome the systemic challenges of outdated, disorganized, and often expensive data. Not to mention the rise of “Big Data” has only compounded the issue. The vast amount of available data has made it tougher than ever to distill the information into actionable next steps and tangible planning initiatives.
How can we as planners solve for sustainable, resilient cities in the age of Big Data?
