Sustainable Cities Conference: Learning and Networking for the Cities of Tomorrow
12-13 July 2016, Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands
Who shapes the future of cities we want? What role will educators, students, and young professionals play? What are the skills, competencies, and tools needed? What are the opportunities for bridging education, research, and practice for sustainable cities?
The Sustainable Cities Conference will be a milestone in our efforts to facilitate knowledge sharing and international collaboration for sustainable urban development. Through the conference, we aim to connect and engage educators, students, researchers, cities’ associations, urban practitioners, and future city makers in meaningful and dynamic discussions on the topic of sustainability in cities.
The conference is supported by the SUSTAIN Project which aims to promote sustainable urban development in higher education and to stimulate cooperation between European and Asian higher education institutes.
The conference is hosted by the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS); the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT); and the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) at Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
