    Sammanfattning : "Democracy" is a frequently used concept in the Western planning field.

  3. 3. Sociotechnical Knowledge. An Operationalised Approach to Localised Infrastructure Planning and Sustainable Urban Development

    Författare :Jaan-Henrik Kain; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; process; critical realism; sociotechnical; strategic choice approach; sustainable development; practice; action; social construction; decision-making; capital; implementation; infrastructure; urban; actor network theory; local; systems theory; design; partnerships; planning;

    Sammanfattning : In processes of urban infrastructural reconfiguration, there is a counterproductive tension between tendencies of de-monopolisation and market liberalisation, on the one hand, and ambitions for sustainable urban development, drawing on Keynesian reformism and ecological modernisation, on the other. In this thesis, the aim is to overcome this tension and to facilitate a concrete operationalisation of the notion &'sustainable urban development' within concrete and localised processes of planning, design, decision-making and implementation.

    Författare :Jennifer R Mc Conville; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Nyckelord :Participation; Sustainability; Urban; Procedural planning theory; Decision-making; Sanitation; Process; Planning practice;

    Sammanfattning : Lack of proper sanitation is linked to significant negative impacts on environmental and public health, economy, and human dignity. Despite the efforts made to reach the United Nations Millennium Development Goals, the world will miss its target of halving the percentage of people without access to improved sanitation by 2015; and there is general agreement within the field of sanitation that the sector has failed to deliver substantial improvements to the most needy.

    Sammanfattning : The aim of the study is to investigate what critical and temporal thinking can mean for younger students (aged 9-10) that requires the adoption of various perspectives in the context of sustainable urban planning, and how such knowing can be orchestrated in joint theoretical exploration work. A particular area of interest is the concept of contradictions (as used in activity theory) as a potential didactic tool for the subject, i. LÄS MER
