Massimo Clemente, Director of Cnr-Iriss and Director of the Scientific Committee of RETE - Association for the Collaboration between Ports and Cities, invites scholars and researchers, experts and professionals to respond to the Call for papers for the Special Issue 2021 of PORTUSplus “Re-Designing the City-Port Ecosystem. The Transformative Regeneration Challenge”.
This special issue investigates the transformative capacity of regeneration efforts that re-design the city-port ecosystem, from the global to the local scale. Can they promote innovative models of resource enhancement and new systems of multi-scale relationships between city and port?
The regeneration of the city-port ecosystem needs multi-dimensional approaches to identify and re-design opportunities for change and innovation at different scales, including the local and regional level, and considering territory, landscape, infrastructure, architecture, services and products.
According to Circular Economic principles, the transformative capacity of the city-port offers a crucial lever for the re-design of regeneration approaches, reconfiguring urban, social, ecological and technological systems. In particular, among new approaches and tools, the “7 Rs” of the Circular Economy model could support the re-design of the city-port ecosystem and identify the main fields of reflection, exploring different aspects and components of transformative capacity.
The special issue welcomes both theoretical and empirical contributions. The deadline for the submission of papers is July 31, 2021.
