Special Issue in Sustainability: Looking beyond Sustainability: Selected Papers from the 9th World Sustainability Forum (WSF 2021)
COVID-19 has shocked our lifestyle with a pandemic period in which socio-economic paradigms have been substantially modified. Public, private and academic sectors are called to cooperate with actions needed to satisfy not only human needs, but also to favour a correct use of natural resources. No one can nowadays act on the global market without having a clear perspective and strategy about the environment, but we can encourage a sustainable revolution to provide a cleaner world (D’Adamo et al., 2020). In addition, there is the opportunity to realize a great plan of green infrastructures, coupled with the maintenance of the existing ones, to support the planet’s rebirth after COVID-19. The application of circular and green practices have a direct impact on response and recovery of infrastructure; that is one of the four components of resilience in addition to resistance, reliability, and redundancy (D’Adamo and Rosa, 2020). Both resilience and sustainability are viewed as distinct concepts, but are positively correlated (Elmqvist et al., 2019). This Special Issue aims to investigate the relationship between these two topics. Theoretical, methodological and practical studies are welcome in this issue.
