“La ciudad agropolitana. La aldea cosmopolita” (The agripolitan city, the cosmopolitan village) is a new book by Jaime Izquierdo Vallina who has written extensively on urban-rural issues, nature conservation, and new perspectives for approaching rural areas.
In his prologue to the book, Yves Champetier has highlighted that over the years, Jaime Izquierdo Vallina has deepened his work, refined his ideas and now offers us a vast panorama of what the world of tomorrow could be and what our world should be. New rural-urban interrelationships need to be developed to meet today’s challenges, such as climate change and the alarming erosion of biodiversity. It is a scholarly overview, combining historical analysis, multiple intellectual references and proposals for action.
The book was launched on 21 October, 2019, in Oviedo, and is available from the publisher, KRK Ediciones
