What contribution can university-community collaborations make to the creation of flourishing cities?

Connected Communities and Urban Living Pilots would like to invite you to our two-day event to explore innovation and latest collaborative work around flourishing cities, engaged citizens and sustainable urban environment.

With a wide range of parallel sessions, including innovative projects, roundtables and practical workshops, the event will provide stimulating discussions about co-produced knowledge, participatory approaches to co-design and critical responses to city challenges and social action.
