For the charrette report The International Gas Union (IGU) has recognized its duty as the world organisation of the gas industry to commit itself to search for the relation between energy design and urban design in the future. This awareness was already present at the 22nd World Gas Conference in Tokyo in June 2003 where an international competition on innovative urban design between 9 teams was presented with the perspective of sustainable future over 100 years. The IGU has now initiated the next phase of their ground- breaking Sustainable Urban Systems Design (SUSD) initiative with the project "Bridging to the Future". It will engage four collaborative teams from Canada, China, India and the Netherlands to develop energy pathways for their urban areas around the globe. Each city's pathway will integrate urban and energy planning, accommodate variable energy scenarios, and use natural gas and other fossil fuels as a bridge to renewable energy and sustainable urban systems. The results will be presented at the next World Gas Conference in Amsterdam in June 2006. The Dutch team, called Grounds for Change, has presented in May 2005 in Groningen its intermediate results, which form the basis for this booklet. I hope this booklet may stimulate discussions for a further development to a more sustainable world, where people can live in a harmonious and environment-friendly way. George H.B. Verberg, President of IGU P 5
