The spread of urbanisation is heating the planet, destroying biodiversity, and making us even more vulnerable to climate change. But cities are also our common good. They are the sites of wealth creation, innovation, culture, solidarity, and resilience. This Atlas provides an unprecedented perspective on our urbanized world.
Eric Verdeil, Thomas Ansart
Jean-Marc Offner déconstruit un par un ces dogmes, hérités des Trente Glorieuses, qui continuent de gouverner villes et territoires, qui ignorent les réalités d'un XXIe siècle urbain, mobile, connecté, et sont inadaptés aux exigences environnementales.
With environmental urgency facing us everywhere, innovative urban projects to reduce pollution and waste are emerging around the world.
But how useful are these experiences on a global scale?
Is it possible to make a town durable without being detrimental to its surroundings?
This book sets out to explore these questions.
Nouveaux modèles de gestion des ressources

Beirut, Cairo, Algiers, Istanbul: have they become ungovernable? Are they too dense, too polluted, too unequal?
