What kind of city do you want to live in? How will your city meet the challenges of the future?

The development of urban living is one of the key challenges for our future – even for those who do not live in cities.

Cities of different sizes, histories and levels of development are laboratories for innovative answers to any number of social, environmental and economic questions. Good and not so good experience concentrates in urban spaces.

Cities have to address these issues – and the people expect to be involved in the processes which will shape the way they live!

The seminar will seek to address 3 key issues:

  • climate change and sustainability;
  • re-structuring  industrial sites and create new living and working opportunities in the urban space;
  • citizens’ participation in these processes of change.
