A key element of UrbanA is the organisation of four co-creative spaces, known as Arena events, during the course of the project. City-makers and city-thinkers from across Europe and across disciplines will come together to connect with one another, to reflect on the urban knowledge that research projects have already identified, and to generate promising approaches to the creation of sustainable, inclusive and thriving cities. Each Arena event will take place in one of four different cities – Rotterdam, Barcelona, Berlin and Brussels – and will focus on a specific theme.
The Barcelona UrbanA Arena event is now taking place online, led by Barcelona Lab for Urban Environmental Justice and Sustainability (BCNUEJ).
The final agenda is here. Applications to participate are now closed.
But please join us for a special public webinar taking place on Friday 5th June, 2.30pm-4pm CEST
