Background

Urban areas produce a series of environmental challenges arising from the consumption of natural resources and the consequent
generation of waste and pollution, contributing to the development of social and economic imbalances. All these problems, that continue
to grow in our society, require the development of new solutions. The Sustainable City 2012 follows six very successful meetings held in Rio (2000), Segovia (2002), Siena (2004), Tallinn (2006), Skiathos (2008) and A Coruña (2010). The conferences attracted a large number of contributions from participants from different backgrounds and countries. The variety of topics and experiences is one of the main reasons behind the success of the series.

Description

The conference addresses environmental challenges facing cities. Topics include natural resources consumption, the generation of waste and pollution, social and economic imbalances, sustainable urban tourism, natural hazards planning, urbanization of rural areas, and sustainable energy resources.
