Shaping the City Venice 2021 | Climate Change and Resilient Cities (Day 1 – Panel 2)


‘Shaping the City: A Forum for Sustainable Cities and Communities’ is a forum organized by the European Cultural Centre (ECC) in the context of its Venice Architecture Biennial Exhibition titled ‘Time Space Existence’. This second edition of the conference recognizes the significant role urban planning and design play in molding the interaction of people with their cities and their wellbeing. Through a series of presentations and panel discussions the forum confronts the fundamental topics shaping the cities of our world.

The panel ‘Climate Change and Resilient Cities’ explores how to engage with the surrounding urban systems and discusses concepts related to urban resilience and climate change adaptation in designing and building cities. Leveraging spatial planning and design are key elements explored by the group of researchers, architects, urban planners and environmental activities through diverse projects that confront the topic of Climate Change and Resilient Cities and its impact in our daily lives.
