Urban and environmental problems are complexly intertwined with the factors of politics, policy, economics, management, science and technology, and social culture on the temporal and spatial axis, short- and long-term, and local and global scale. Hence, to design and plan optimal solutions for these issues, we must understand the complex urban and environmental systems from multidimensional perspectives. Therefore, it is necessary to broaden our horizons and minds, gain specialised knowledge and study methods from diverse fields, such as economics, business management, policy, psychology, and other social sciences, engineering, and informatics, and facilitate improvements through the integration and advancement of interdisciplinary methodologies.
