05: Urban Europe, Urban Technologies – The City in the 21st Century

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

The future of Europe will be decided in its cities. Even today, a majority of Europe s population lives in urban regions which generate a large portion of our welfare. They are engaged in a worldwide competition for quality of life, productivity and communications, they vie for investments and the “best brains”. At the same time they confront us with environmental damage, urban sprawl, problems of urban traffic and transport, the segregation of migratory groups, security problems and their climate impact. The working group will deal with global urban challenges, joint European solutions and available technologies.
