We are about to launch a new project entitled ‘RIZE 2053: What kind of city do we want to live in?’. We know that 37 years, from 2016 to 2053, is quite a long time interval for urban planning. However, we want to introduce a new understanding to urban development and our desire is to create a change in the ongoing practices by letting all stakeholders construct this long-term process from the initial stage to the end. It took me quite a long time to write this project proposal, mostly due to my lack of knowledge in this field. I am also struggling to convince most of the internal staff to collaborate on this project. I would be grateful if we can integrate your research into our project and benefit from your experiences in this field (Coordinator of the RIZE 2053 Project, the Municipality of Rize).
