Two regions are compared to find out similarities and possible solutions to the problems that they are facing. It is very different challenges from the growing cities. It tries to to see how to retain a high quality of life while still promoting economic growth, how to modernize and regionalize their transportation systems, how to make the shift towards sustainable energy and food production and how to keep alive regional identity and local democracy in a rapidly globalizing world.

The research was done by LSE Cities, PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency and the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment.
