Augmented Urbans – Technologies for urban participation and resilience

January 27 @ 10:00 am - 12:15 pm EET

Augmented Urbans webinar delves into the promising and up-and-coming intersection of XR technologies and contemporary urban planning.

Cities today are facing increasingly complex challenges — how can we plan, design and build them to be more resilient against those forces?

We explore how to apply resilience thinking to practical urban planning work, and how new technologies can assist urban planners in making public participation better for everyone.

Join us in crystallising insights from our three-year collaborative development journey. Expect insightful keynotes by leading experts and inspiring lightning talks from our project’s Local Actions in cities around the Baltic sea.

The Zoom link to the Webinar will be sent to attendees via Eventbrite. If you are unable to use Zoom, follow this Facebook event to get a link to the YouTube live stream on the day of the Webinar.
