The Urban Trends books aim to share key ideas, movements and influences on city making and urban living. Doing it Differently looks at a range of creative and innovative solutions to the challenges of urban living. Creativity in all its forms is essential to the healthy evolution of urban environments, particularly when undergoing such rapid change. Often the young and differently minded can find ways to respond to local problems that policy and bureaucracy could take years to even acknowledge. Collaborative consumption the sharing or resources and peer to peer exchange, was named by Time Magazine in 2010 as one of the top 10 ideas that will change the world. The movement has triggered an urban adaptation with communities around the world actively creating the environments they want. Other groups such as Australia’s own Renew Newcastle have themselves been the catalyst for creative revitalisation projects globally.
