The congress will discuss the rapidly-evolving topic of "Climate Change and Urban Design", and the latest implications in science, policy, education and best practice.
While our focus is on European place-making we will explore urban design examples from around the globe that offer opportunities to address critical climate change issues.
What is the latest science telling us? What are the consequences for urban development internationally? What are the practical solutions available to reduce climate gas emissions from urban settlements and transport? What strategies are available to adapt to changing conditions?
The C.E.U. congress will welcome government officials, planners, architects, social scientists, ecologists, developers, local community activists, and all other development stakeholders who feel a responsibility to contribute to more sustainable urban development.
Leading work will be presented and discussed from Europe, North America and elsewhere. We will cover an extremely wide range of topics on mitigation and adaptation in urban design, spanning science, policy, education and best practice.
Among topics discussed will be land use patterns; urban morphology, density and mixed use; transport modes; the relationship of urban space to agrictultural lands and wilderness; albedo and heat island effects; microclimate effects; economics incentives; pricing and trading; curriculum reform; evidence-based design; planning processes, coding and certification; and promising innovations from around the world. We will consider the latest analytic and modelling research, together with the latest tools and other advances in policy and implementation.
WHAT YOU WILL GET:
C.E.U. congress will provide you with important information and knowledge on the latest advances in science, policy, education and best practice, with a clear sense of the next steps - both individually and collectively.
C.E.U. CONGRESS DECLARATION
The C.E.U. congress will convene to develop a final declaration on key issues and next steps. The C.E.U. declaration will build on our previous declarations in areas including sustainable urbanism and urbanist education to summarise conclusions conclusions from each of the four sessions, reflecting the latest conclusions and imperatives for action:
Science: What we know
Policy: What we must do
Education: How we must develop and disseminate skills
Best Practice: How we must implement these conclusions
The C.E.U. declaration will seek to place urban design in the context of wider climate change issues, and the whole-systems approach that will be required to mitigate and adapt to this urgent challenge.
The C.E.U. congress will welcome all urban development stake-holders from Europe and internationally, who feel a responsibility to contribute to more sustainable urban development, including government officials, planners, architects, social scientists, ecologists, developers, and local community activists
