    INVITATION to our virtual event-duo:

    Cities around the world have become frontrunners on sustainability, are key players in the green recovery, and are central to the UK and Italy COP26 campaigns. Acting jointly, they can be a real transformative power, offering a test ground for new ideas and innovation, and making climate action feel relevant and applicable to their citizens. At the same time, cities are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, requiring considerable investment into resilient infrastructure.

    This event-duo curated by the Embassies of Italy and the UK to Germany as part of European Sustainable Development Week will offer a platform to discuss best practice from city-level climate action, drawing on experiences from Italy, the UK and Germany.

    Event 2: Friday 25th September • 10.30 – 12.00 CEST
    "On green spaces we all are equal - versatile spaces for the city of the future"

    What makes life in our cities so special is the variety of life scripts that can be developed, which is both a challenge and a freedom at the same time. The current pandemic has shown how fast advantages can turn into disadvantages, because cities are particularly exposed to the dictates of a viral outbreak due to their density and also their reliance on uninterrupted supply chains. Nonetheless, urban areas hold a great creative potential.

    Today, more than ever, open and green spaces are a fundamental part of cities, they guarantee a certain freedom, because in these places we can experience and foster diversity, meet and relax in an informal way. Green and open spaces therefore require special attention from planning disciplines and from urban development institutions. Open spaces, whether they are designed at ground level or on rooftops, must be thought of as versatile spaces, because this is where their strength lies: Rainwater reservoirs, ventilation guarantors, fine-dust binders are of utmost importance for the urban climate. These 'free' (green) spaces can reduce inequalities and promote solidarity and cohesion in cities.

    This second digital event will discuss with internationally experienced architects, thought-leaders and planners about the process capability of planning, the new time management of the cities and interdisciplinary solutions, which have to be found together with their users. Different approaches to the topic will be discussed across different municipalities and countries.

    This event will be held via Zoom.
