Abstract [en]

The majority of people on earth now live in cities andin developing economies. This process of migrationto cities has been very fast. Cities thus havea profound influence on how our societies affectthe ecosystems that support life on earth. As anexample, cities occupy only 2% of the land on earthbut they emit around 75% of all greenhouse gasesfrom human activities. Should we then regard citiesas a major threat towards sustainability?
