Innovation is our common future - INTA Initiative for Habitat III
Social, technological and territorial innovation: the tools for a sustainable future.
A preparatory document for Habitat III, "The City We Need" has set key principles and essential paths for building a new urban agenda, questioning what direction global urban development will take in the coming 20 years, and what shall guide national and local governments, their partners, and the international community to prepare for the urban future. However, assertive statements alone cannot constitute the premises of a new urban paradigm. In general these mechanistic approaches do not address basic structural problems nor do they offer workable solutions appropriately scaled for tomorrow’s challenges.
