Envisioning a sustainable future: Public infrastuctures – what will they be and look like?
Welcome to this Urban Lunch Talk about sustainable urban futures and infrastructural transition. How will this be addressed and approached, and what is to be achieved?
The webinar will be recorded in Zoom, and later on published for the JPI Urban Europe’s Youtube channel.
New envisioned future theme
The Urban Lunch Talk concept has newly shifted focus to the partnership Driving Urban Europe (DUT) part about sustainable futures. The upcoming talk about public infrastructures will involve discussions on the envisioned future of urban infrastructures based on the latest research and innovation knowledge. What are the dilemmas with public infrastructure development, technically and socially, and which are the ways to address the challenges? What is there to be achieved – what will sustainable urban infrastructure in the future be and look like?

Call topic about urban infrastructure
In ENUTC, urban transformation capacities are related to call topics addressing a wide variety of urban challenges, such as robust and resilient urban infrastructure. This topic, including built environment, implies an urban infrastructure that can resist natural, environmental, social, economic and technological threats on smaller and larger scales based on efficient use of resources. It also implies fair access to urban infrastructure and the built environment.
