In the 21st century, the historically unique epoch of growth that began with industrialization 200 years ago will come to an end. In particular, climate change, dwindling fossil sources of energy, demographic aging, and rationalization in the service industry will lead to new forms of urban shrinking and a marked increase in the number of shrinking cities. To illuminate this, the project Shrinking Cities has produced a global future study with 9 maps of the world and an extensive collection of data showing the effects of this phenomenon on urban development in the various countries.
