Urban Arena Roundtable 

Urban Transformation Capacities

Thursday, 31 March 2022, 12:00-13:00

Capacity building is a key challenge to realise more sustainable, resilient and liveable cities. In this roundtable, we will hear about three new projects on urban transformation capacities related to libraries, public transport systems, and urban living laboratories. Then we will have an open discussion about the opportunities and challenges of developing creative and innovative governance approaches to generate, share, and apply knowledge in new ways. Please join us!
