Urban infrastructures and lifestyles cause a large part of global greenhouse gas emissions and resource depletion. They leave global footprints! Half of the world's population is already living in cities, and by 2050 an increase to about two-thirds is expected. Cities as places of innovation are not only part of the problem, but also part of the solution to climate and resource protection. A new research project of jurist Dr. Cathrin Zengerling at the HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU) explores responsible control models of urban ecological footprints. Eight cities in eight countries are being researched by her and her an interdisciplinary team. The innovative project is supported by a Freigeist Fellowship of the Volkswagen Foundation.
