Within the context of Agenda 2030, the built environment stands at the crossroad of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), as it is a determinant for making green, energy-efficient and zero-pollution buildings and neighbourhoods (SDG3, SDG11, SDG15); boosting the circular economy (SDG8); lowering GHG emissions and contributing to climate change mitigation and adaptation (SDG3, SDG9); protecting biodiversity (SDG15); and creating strong and global partnerships (SDG17).

The built environment is also key to the health and well-being of people, and its design is instrumental in achieving high-quality urban environments in response to societal, environmental and economic sustainability challenges like climate change, energy consumption, nature preservation and pollution. However, a scrutiny of the literature in sustainability and urban design studies shows that mainstream ‘sustainable’ approaches to the design of the built environment are mainly driven by a digital and technocratic approach applied to the building and neighbourhood scale, which tends to sideline the public realm and the social and natural life which unfolds there. Furthermore, mainstream ‘sustainable’ approaches are underpinned by theoretical and methodological frameworks with a bias towards cognitivism, thus overlooking the complex and interrelated cognitive, emotional, affective and corporal conditions of human beings.

To tackle these challenges, sustainability scholars have developed novel sustainability paradigms, such as the Regenerative Sustainability (RS) and the Sensory Sustainability Science (SSS) frameworks. The RS paradigm, for instance, aims to manifest thriving complex adaptive systems in a fully integrated individual-to-global system and calls for humans to live in conscious alignment with the living system principles of wholeness, change and relationships, as nature does. Another novel approach is represented by the one underpinning the so-called SSS paradigm, which calls for incorporating recent advances in social science, sensory studies and neo-phenomenology related to theories about corporeality, materiality, atmosphere and resonance in sustainability science.

However, how are these sustainability paradigms addressed in urban design by scholars and practitioners? What are the implications for theoretical and applied research, practice and developments in sustainability and urban design?

This Special Issue, “Urban Design for Sustainable Built Environment”, scrutinises these open questions through a collection of nine research articles which reflect a paradigm shift towards sustainable urban design practices and studies which privilege people and sustainable development in respect of the planet.
Specifically, these articles address three macro-themes: (a) regenerative streets and green public spaces; (b) emotions, cognition and orientation; and (c) methods and technology, as outlined in the following sections.

Within the context of the Mutual Learning Exercise Citizen Science Initiatives – Policy and Practice – initiated by the European Commission D-G Research & Innovation in collaboration with 11 Member States’ representatives – I worked as High-Level Expert on Topic 5 Scaling up citizen science. In this role, I was responsible for doing research on the understudied topic of scaling up citizen science to prepare and write the Discussion Paper and the  Thematic Report as well as curate a 2-day Workshop dedicated to exploring the topic via interactive sessions and focus groups held in Berlin on 7-8 November 2022.


Topic 5 in the series “Scaling up citizen science” addressed meanings, dimensions, models and approaches/strategies of scalability in citizen science as well as drivers, success factors and challenges of (up)scaling citizen science projects and initiatives across Europe.

Due to limited knowledge available in the literature about scaling up in citizen science, both the Topic 5 Discussion Paper and the Thematic Report draw on original content generated through a mixed methods approach which combined findings from i) a literature review, ii) a survey distributed among the MLE CSI-PP country representatives, iii) interviews with seven experts in citizen science and cognate disciplines, and iv) three working sessions held during the Berlin meeting on 7-8 November 2022.

The main outcomes of Topic 5 consist of:

  • a multi-dimension qualitative definition of scaling up in citizen science,
  • the MLE CSI-PP Responsible and Inclusive Scalability Framework,
  • nine exemplary citizen science projects and initiatives and
  • eight key areas of action for policymakers aimed at supporting the (up)scaling of citizen science projects and initiatives across Europe.

Firstly, the Thematic Report acknowledges that scaling up is a value/ambition that suits unique types of citizen science projects and initiatives. Hence it suggests that scaling up should be i) a ‘responsible’ and inclusive process, ii) context- and domain-dependent, iii) sustained by a sound logic consistent with the project/initiative, iv) driven by common scientific questions and common social challenges, and v) built on proven impact, related to science and scientific literacy, inclusion, regulatory frameworks, matters of concern (e.g., environmental, societal).

Secondly, drawing on this multi-dimension qualitative definition of scaling up, it introduces the MLECSI-PP Responsible and Inclusive Scalability Framework composed of four models of scalability (scaling up-out-deep-down) and two approaches/strategies (top-down/deliberate and bottom-up/accidental).

Thirdly, it presents five citizen science projects and initiatives exemplary of the four models and the two approaches/strategies of the MLECSI-PP Responsible and Inclusive Scalability Framework, namely: Plastic Pirates – Go Europe!, OpenStreetMap, CurieuzeNeuzen, Hush City and Roadkill. Furthermore, four exemplary upscaled citizen science projects are illustrated in the Discussion Paper, i.e., FotoQuest GO, The Star Spotting Experiment, Tea Bag Index, Dugnad for Havet (in English: Marine Citizen Science) [1].

Finally, the Thematic Report proposes eight key areas of action for policymakers:

  • Rethink the meaning of Innovation in CS acknowledging that today innovation in CS stands in the processes of reproducing/sustaining/upscaling successful CS projects and initiatives[2].
  • Adopt and promote a multi-dimension qualitative definition of scalability which stems from the triangulation of proof of value, matter of concern and social/legal alignment and, according to this definition, define specific evaluation criteria for selecting CS projects/initiatives to be scaled up.
  • Ensure responsible scaling-up addresses the RRI dimensions[3] and ensure they are accounted in the design and development of the projects/initiatives to align outcomes with the values of society.
  • Commit to ‘People First’ (up)scaling processes, acknowledging the importance of keeping people central and connected in the process of scaling CS projects/initiatives and taking action to remove the systemic barriers impeding people from actively participating in science producing ‘contextualised knowledge’ on the local/regional/national/EU level[4].
  • Support a Responsible Scaling Ambition[5] in CS by designing specific funding programs and mechanisms, diversifying the sources/types of funding, and ensuring the funding lines and sources can be visible to CS grassroots movements and bottom-up CS projects/initiatives.
  • Support the implementation of different models (up-out-deep-down) and approaches/strategies (top-down/deliberate, bottom-up/accidental) of scalability, acknowledging scalability in CS is context- and domain-dependent and should be responsible, inclusive and aligned with the logics of the projects/initiatives.
  • Develop local/regional/national/European networks to foster collaboration and initiate discussions about the cultural transformation/s and implications expected via the scaled projects, with an emphasis on the language issue and its cultural and scientific implications.
  • Support the exploitation of citizen-generated data from (up)scaled CS projects/initiatives integrating them in policies and policymaking programs at the local/regional/national/EU level.

Planning Artificial Light at Night for Pedestrian Visual Diversity in Public Spaces

Sustainability 2023, 15(2), 1488;

This open access article makes the case for addressing pedestrian visual diversity when planning artificial light for public spaces at night, by drawing upon original findings from an exploratory study where twenty-one open-ended interviews were conducted with experts in the fields of artificial lighting, urban planning and health studies. Specifically, this article provides (1) the introduction of the concept of pedestrian visual diversity, defined as the condition, capabilities and needs of visually impaired pedestrians, (2) a systematization of overlooked issues in the planning of artificial light for visual diverse pedestrians in public spaces and (3) the proposition of a participatory framework for the application of lightwalks as an experiential method for involving visual diverse pedestrians in the data collection on and analysis of artificial lighting in public spaces at night. In conclusion, it identifies five strands for further research at the nexus of pedestrian visual diversity, public space and night studies for inclusive light planning.

Against the contemporary disciplinary debate on the creation of river baths as a means of regaining rivers for public life and improving environmental quality, this article presents the treatment of the Spree River in Berlin, by analysing three projects: the Spreeweg, the Flussbad Berlin and the Spree2011/WITE. To develop the research, which feeds this article, mixed methods were applied, such as historical sources consultation, literature and planning documents review, interviews and empirical research. The analysis of the three projects showed potentialities for addressing ecological, hydrological, engineering and environmental issues, in light of sustainable development. However, it remains unclear what forms and at what scale these possibilities will be implemented in practice in Berlin.

For the Journal Frontiers in Psychology (Impact Factor 2.129 [JCR, 2019], section: Environmental Psychology), Drs. Jieling Xiao, Francesco Aletta and I are curating a Research Topic on Smells, Well-being, and the Built Environment. Below an excerpt from the Call for Contributions, open until 30 November 2020.

“From the pungent smells of Khari Baoli Spice Market in New Delhi to soothing smells of Mayfair Lavender Farm in south London, smells bring distinct identities to places and can connect people emotionally to the surroundings. Smells are powerful to influence our feeling and recall memories of the past. Experiences of smells enrich our understandings of places and behavioral responses in places. In light of aromatherapies, spaces with therapeutic smells can potentially bring positive impacts on human wellbeing. In service spaces, smells are important environmental cues to delight people. In artistic practice, smells are curated to create an immersive experience to connect the audience and artists’ inner worlds. Conversely smells in the form of odor pollution deriving from waste, traffic, plants, and food districts can compromise the quality of life of residents, and negatively affect our experience of places and lead to behavior changes.

Smell, as a wellbeing-spatial medium, how much do we know about?

We aim to collect a body of work to understand the emotional and wellbeing responses resulted from smells in different public spaces (museums, highstreets, heritage buildings, food districts, gentrified neighborhoods, squares, etc.) to inform future spatial design and management.

In particular, the collection wishes to contribute three parts of literature:

  • Theoretical frameworks to understand relationships between smells, wellbeing and emotions, behaviors and physiological aspects;
  • Methodological approaches to measure smell triggered emotions, experiences, and quality of life;
  • Practical explorations on the process and challenges of using smells to trigger emotions and manipulate behaviors.

We welcome cross-disciplinary contributions from architecture, geography, urban design and planning, psychology, neuroscience, business management, art and cultural studies, environmental planning, environmental justice, gentrification studies, citizen science. The collection is open to a broad range of article types, including Original Research, Review, Hypothesis and Theory, Perspective, Brief Research Report, and Case Study. Please note that Authors may include audios and videos as supplementary materials”.

Keywords: wellbeing, emotions, smell perception, smell scape, environmental odors, sensory urbanism, spatial design and management, environmental planning, citizen science.
