Conference 2022: Public Spaces
The dual challenge of resource scarcity and climate change increases the importance of designing ecologically, economically and socially sustainable cities. Next to a focus on energy and digitalisation, innovative urban design approaches actively include city inhabitants through participative, co-creative methods, increasing the efficiency, attractiveness, usability and accessibility of urban public spaces. These key issues were in the focus of the INUAS Conference 2022. Around 120 participants representing science, research and private as well as public-private enterprises presented and discussed a variety of ecological, political, managerial and socio-technical issues and perspectives tied to the overarching objective of sustainable development of urban and non-urban public spaces.
