Urbanization and Cultural Landscape

The aim of the Urbanization and Cultural Landscape workshops remains focused on understanding changes and transformations of urban contexts and realities in relation with cultural and environmental values. Economic instability, conflicts, globalisation, migrations, climate change, mass tourism, diffusion of technology are rapidly transforming our cities and our living societies. In this scenario, cities are confronting and managing such changes, where culture should play a crucial role. Culture is a main factor to improve capacities which will impact on communities’ development.

The current edition of the Urbanization and Cultural Landscape programme will focus on urban development, participation and sustainability. Additionally, recognising participation procedures (management - planning) and methods in order to maximise the opportunities of public’s participation for urban development in the context of historic cities.
