Cities are faced with various problems, including terrorism,
energy challenges, and environmental issues, as well as inter-urban competition
brought about by expanding globalization forces. What is required is to gather
theoretical insights from various scientific areas, not only social science–
humanities but also natural science, and connect them to the practical insights
already gained through numerous efforts to deal with these issues on the
ground. In this way, paradigms for urban creativity can be developed and we can
start to accrue dependable practice and theoretically based intelligence that
can be used for improved policymaking. The keywords for this book series are
“urban creativity”, “(cultural) heritage”, and “social development”. Developing
cultural and natural resources, including heritage, so as to take the lead in
evaluating, implementing, and suggesting urban or regional designs that harmonize
ecology, society, and people, and to further develop urban and regional culture
is essential. There is a particular focus in this book series on fostering individuals
who can design, manage, and direct models, technologies, and tools for promoting
interfaces between such actors as policymakers, urban planners, engineers, and
residents. The above-stated goals can be implemented through cooperation with
international research communities and networks, international organizations,
and natural history institutions, academies of science, and research institutes.
