          Stadsbeelden voor het post-carbon tijdperk

        Abstract
        Two recent trends in thinking about the sustainable city, the Transition Town movement and the Territorialist School, explicitly conjure up the image of a world composed of modest-sized cities standing out neatly against a territorial background. On closer examination, these images are not the object but rather the inspiration for an urban development movement predicated on societal change, building momentum for this by linking a catastrophic scenario of imminent, irreversible processes of de-territorialisation, climate change and exhaustion of energy supply to an advocacy of local action and regional anchoring. This results in a project aimed at creating a ‘structure of habitation and cultivation’ of the territory that increases the capacity of citizens to act and elevates the small city to the ‘ideal’ of a localised utopia. In so doing, both movements provide an interesting commentary on the societal ambiguity of ecological systems thinking, but potentially surrender thinking about the city to a unilateral reflection on cultural identity and community.
