Transformations in urban landscapes go hand in hand with transformations in the regimes of urban planning. To simultaneously achieve sustainable transformations in the urban-rural continuum and shift towards more organic, collaborative and sustainability oriented planning regimes poses serious challenges for governance. As these transformations come with multi-faceted conflicts and rapidly changing advocacy coalitions, this project aims to contribute to developing and practicing new forms of governance that take into account transdisciplinary knowledge development as well as conflicting perspectives among the users of the urban landscape and within planning regimes. New options for governance will be developed and operationalised in experimental area-development strategies, with a focus on the allocation and use of green (peri)urban areas. In line with the European Landscape Convention, this may enable a sustainability transition in the urban rural continuum that allows for transformations, which are desirable or inevitable without sacrificing landscape features that preserve individual and social well-being.
