The conference “Empowering Cities and Citizens” is organised on the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS), the 105th anniversary of Erasmus University Rotterdam and of the 1st year of the Erasmus initiative “Vital Cities and Citizens” (VCC). Citymar Consultancy is the joint initiator of the conference, together with Erasmus University Rotterdam.
Urban research and practice connecting
The event offers an excellent opportunity to discuss the ‘hot topics’ of urban research and practice, to find ways of measuring outcomes and to look at the ‘status quo’ of the SDG implementation with colleagues from around the world, whether local and regional governments, practitioners, researchers or other stakeholders.
Together, we aim to make cities vital, well-managed, liveable, sustainable and fair. We can only achieve that with professionals that are equipped to handle complex urban challenges. How do cities and communities learn and co-create knowledge? The conference offers an opportunity to reflect on current and new urban trends for both institutions, whether in urban development and management, or humanities, social and behavioural sciences.
