URBANITAS – the first forum for a sustainable, resilient and creative city

On Thursday, May 4th, and Friday, May 5th, the city of Rome is going to host URBANITAS, the first forum for a sustainable, resilient and creative city. Public institutions, research centers, enterprises, national and international stakeholders will be involved in a 2-days forum tailored for the promotion of a dialogue about the future of the city of Rome according to the New Urban Agenda and The City We Need principles, and for the elaboration of concrete proposals in the context of 5 thematic areas: governance and commons, co-design, creative districts, mobility and circular economy.

The forum, organized by Ordine degli Architetti di Roma and Open City Roma, is articulated in two days:

May 4th @MAXXI: the first part of the day will be dedicated, after an opening plenary, to an Urban Thinkers Session, where urban best practices will be presented by experts. LabGov’s co-founder, Christian Iaione, is going to attend this session. Afterwards, the forum is going to host 6 Urban Thinkers Labs.

May 5th @Sala Convegni AIL: the morning will be fully dedicated to a plenary session on mobility. The afternoon provides 4 round tables with experts, academics and councillors from Rome’s Municipality. After the end of Urbanitas works, Open House Roma (the annual event on urban culture and architecture) is going to start.

The full program of the event is available on Urbanitas Official Website.
