The paper is focused on the relationship between urban and rural settlements, established via information networks and oriented towards climate change adaptation and mitigation. The first part of the paper provides a review of emerging ideas and innovations related to the (un)conventional use of information networks in reducing the consequences of climate change, while the second part examines the strategic role of networks in the exchange of data and knowledge. Two levels are especially emphasized - the domain of public communication of climate change, and the level of connectivity within (r)urban hybrid systems (i.e. their effectiveness, accessibility and low-carbon outcomes). In accordance with recent environmental and technological trends, as well as the possible spatiofunctional flexibility of (r)urban hybrid settlements, the paper indentifies and analyses three areas of networks applicability, targeting main challenges of the anticipated climate-friendly development - hum...an behaviour, ecological awareness and general efficiency.
