The Urban Commission of IGU C16-37 is designed to encourage geographical research on the new Urban Challenges emerging in an increasingly Complex World, and to further the exchange of findings among urban geographers from many countries.
Cities, with their distinctive processes and problems, are major features of the modern world.
Hence the commission will use a comparative global context to focus on their properties, the social, economic and environmental issues they pose, and to evaluate the utility of political and societal solutions to their problems.
Eleven specific urban challenges:
1- Complex Urban Systems and processes of cities’ transformation
2- Technological innovations, creative activities in cities
3- Innovative, smart building and transportation in cities
4- Polycentrism, small and medium size cities
5- Sustainable to resilient cities
6- Shrinking and aging Cities
7- Urban Governance, planning and participative democracy
8- Contested Social Spaces
9- Subjective/Objective well-being in cities
10- Urban Heritage and Conservation
11- New concepts and methods in urban studies
