Urban planning is "a technical and political process that is focused on the development and design of land use and the built environment, including air, water, and the infrastructure passing into and out of urban areas, such as transportation, communications, and distribution networks and their accessibility."
With the term urban transitions, we address more than just planning itself, but rather advancements towards urban sustainability, especially when citizens are the initiators and the driving force. We stress the fact that this is an ongoing transformation that takes place plurally.
