The world faces challenges that supersede and ignore national and regional boundaries and cannot be solved by a single individual, nation, science, or profession. Preparing for the outcomes of population growth and rising global temperatures requires multidisciplinary approaches and collaboration amoung all the stakeholders. Global social and environmental issues will increasingly become multiregional and multinational, and we therefore will need to plan in what should become one language. The language of geodesign.
In The International Geodesign Collaboration: Changing Geography by Design, editors Thomas Fisher, Brian Orland, and Carl Steinitz introduce you to a geodesign approach that allows multiple disciplinary teams to collaborate and design at geographic scale using geographic information systems (GIS) and design tools to explore alternative future scenarios.
The International Geodesign Collaboration: Changing Geography by Design shows how researchers, scientists, designers, and students, can use geodesign principles to work together through analysis, technology, and collaboration.
