The last decades, we have been witnessing dramatic human-induced earth system changes, the most notable being climate change, but also biodiversity loss, pollution, acidification of the oceans, deforestation and the overexploitation of non-renewable resources. Furthermore, more than half of the world’s population currently lives in urban areas. This increasing urbanization has social and economic advantages, such as better education, health care, sanitation, housing, but also significant consequences on the environment, our lifestyle and well-being.
