Urbanism Next Europe Conference
June 25-26, 2020
Rotterdam, the Netherlands
Big changes are coming in urban mobility and urban development. They’re coming fast and will have profound impacts on land use, real estate, public space, building design and all transport modes.
A lot of research and media attention has focused on the technical aspects of new mobility and the growth of e-commerce. But the built environment and urban governance have decisive roles to play. How should local and regional governments deal with these forces of change? How can elected officials and the professionals that plan, design, build and manage urban form contribute to positive outcomes? What can we learn from existing research, and where do we need more research? What can the private sector expect, and how can it partner with the public sector for the common good?
In short, how can we build the strategic vision and the integrated approach that cities need? This will be the focus of the first European edition of the Urbanism Next Conference, an exciting new initiative which already has had several successful editions in the United States.
Urbanism Next Europe is a platform to foster interdisciplinary dialogue among people from the private, public and academic sectors who play critical roles in the future of our cities, hold a “piece of the puzzle” and want to cooperate to reach societal goals.
A call for entire sessions (90 min) is now open until February 28, 2020. You may apply here: https://polisnetwork.civi-go.net/civicrm/event/register?reset=1&id=61. A call for abstracts/contributions will be open in March.
