Abstract

The scientific knowledge and technologies available provide us with theoretical and practical tools to face environmental challenges, reminding us of responsibility to review the relationship between natural systems and production, consumption and our behaviors. This task can no longer be postponed. These considerations underpin the contemporary debate on sustainable devel- opment and ecological transition and guide national and trans-national policy agendas. On the other hand, civil society is also becoming increasingly attentive to these issues in an attempt to reverse current trends. Every field of knowledge is involved in the formulation of possible solutions, individual or system, aimed at the analysis and containment of the climate emergency, so that dramatic cir- cumstances can be prevented in terms of loss of life and biodiversity. The field of architecture and design are also involved in this reflection, because of their close correlation with the industrial sector on the one hand and with the social partners on the other. In both cases design plays a role of mediation between economic and production needs and social demands concerning the right to the city and urban democracy.
