Die Nachwachsende Stadt – Climate Adaption

Die Nachwachsende Stadt – Climate Adaption


Location: Floating University Berlin
Date: 24 May, 2018

Architects and planners are increasingly confronted with new challenges: Fossil energy resources as well as non-renewable materials are on the decline, the effects of climate change and pollution threaten our living conditions and environment and lead to migratory movements and conflicts worldwide. Global urbanization and construction processes are among the largest greenhouse gas producers. At the same time, our increasingly urbanized societies offer a chance for a radical rethinking of these processes. Only if we succeed in making the global urban transformation sustainable and socially inclusive, we can secure our planetary survival.

This event consists of three short input lectures and a joint discussion, bringing together diverse perspectives on climate adaption and water provision. CUW’s founder Marcela López (geographer) will be participating in the event, alongside Katherine Bell (artist), and Marco Schmidt (engineer).

In cooperation with the Habitat Unit, Technische Universität Berlin
