- Delineate the main similarities and differences between the cities and what they imply for potential solutions for such problems; (–> provide an analysis and link to solutions!)
- Outline possible solutions to the urban problem you have presented; (–> move from theory to action!)
- Conclude by stating what both cities can learn from one another (–> lead out of the topic)
