January 26, 2022 - Online Live Stream

Rationalising Shopping: Are new patterns of consumption an opportunity for reinventing urbanity?

Urban retail is being reinvented. Even before the pandemic, e‑commerce was challenging recreational shopping in cities, ethical concerns about cheap labour were becoming more prominent and the climate and ecological emergency was prompting questions about hyper-consumerism, the accumulation of more stuff and ‘discard culture’. In the wake of the global pandemic, new lifestyles and consumption habits are emerging which will accelerate changes in the shopping and retail sector with profound implications for cities and their spaces of mass consumption. 

This final Urban Age Debate, taking place on January 26 from 1.00-2.00 pm broadcasted live via YouTube, aims to address fundamental questions of sustainable urban consumption, local economic development, entrepreneurship and placemaking in bringing together leading experts and thinkers in urban retail, design, and sustainable development to discuss the future of retail.

January 26, 2022 - Hybrid Event: Online / Koprivnica, CROATIA

CIVITAS regional city exchange workshop

Join CIVITAS on 26–27 January 2022 for both a CIVITAS regional city exchange workshop on rural-urban mobility and an incubation workshop presenting tools to develop long-term mobility solutions. The workshops can be attended online or in person in Koprivnica (Croatia). Participation is free, and registration is mandatory.

Incubation workshop
Mobility solutions no longer come from single providers, such as city mobility departments, a single public transport authority, or an infrastructure provider. Solutions are now developed and delivered by various stakeholders, based on a clear understanding of mobility needs. This incubation workshop will present tools and instruments that can be used to develop interventions in this complex environment, which are acceptable, financially viable, legally possible and self-sustaining in the long term.

The Koprivnica event will open with a half-day incubation workshop, held on 26 January from 13:00–16:00 (UTC+1). Mobility service providers and local authorities, in particular, are invited to join.

Regional City Exchange Workshop
Next, all day on 27 January, mobility stakeholders are invited to join a CIVITAS regional city exchange workshop.

Koprivnica is a small city of 33,700 inhabitants in northwest Croatia. While active sustainable mobility policies have resulted in a high percentage of cyclists and pedestrians in the city centre, the city is continuing to tackle the challenges of making the local transport more sustainable, expanding its public transport network. Improving sustainable mobility outside of the urban core is critically important for Koprivnica in order to better connect the city to other, small, neighbouring municipalities. As a result, this workshop will focus on rural-urban mobility, tackling the question: how to sustainably connect small cities? This focus will be tackled, in part, by reflecting on the work catalysed when Koprivinca was an active city in the CIVITAS DYN@MO. Discussions will be complemented by a site visit.

Local authorities, those working in the mobility sector, mobility service providers, students, researchers and more are all warmly invited to join – in particular those who themselves face the challenge of rural-urban connectivity.

February 2, 2022 - Webinar

Planning for a more inclusive transition of urban mobility

On February  2, 2022 the INDIMO and SPROUT projects will hold a joint webinar titled: "Planning for a more inclusive transition of urban mobility".

The webinar will bring both projects together to share their research results and explore synergies and possibilities on how the SPROUT pilot cities can make use of the INDIMO tools. The webinar will discuss the pilot use cases of Emilia-Romagna (INDIMO) and Valencia (SPROUT), both based on the installation of e-lockers, and see how they can benefit from each other by analyzing the key stakeholders involved, challenges, barriers, drivers, benefits, differences, and commonalities.

The webinar will be also an opportunity to analyze how the INDIMO policy evaluation tool can be implemented and tested by the SPROUT cities, in this case Valencia, to formulate a more inclusive policy response that makes its e-locker an inclusive urban mobility solution.

7th Smart City & Buildings

The resilience of our cities, society and living standards has just gone through an unpredictable stress test. Our usually lively city centers and streets emptied faster than ever. The world changed exponentially in just a few months.

Local authorities could tangibly identify which Smart City initiatives worked and which ones need to undergo a major re-think. The escalation of the pandemic created a sort of Living Lab environment, underlining the shelter-in-place needs of functional micro-communities, crowd control, civic offices, e-health, surveillance, emergency services, neighbourhood real-time data, cross-departmental data needs and many more vital elements of a Smart City.

The microscopic small virus accelerated the need for digitisation, collaboration and innovation. In this crossroad of modern history, a new age of modern cities and its purposes, services and infrastructure will take form.

It is around these forward-looking topics our agenda is built to guide you in building up smart, sustainable and resilient cities of the future. Better quality of life and urban areas that are increasingly connected, powered by smart technologies and at the same time adaptive societally.

Welcome to explore imperative business models and strategies to improve your city. Welcome to SMART CITY & BUILDINGS 2022!
