During the last years, cities have seen rapid shifts to virtual and remote work, new partnerships across ecosystems, and unprecedented levels of adaptability. Now, as organizations and governments rethink what social inclusion means for cities, ensuring affordable lives, breaking the digital gap and “breaking” systemic inequalities are no longer optional. What do cities need to do to reinforce their commitment not to leave anybody behind? What are the best policy approaches to open up the city to all? How can cities meet the needs of displaced populations?

Mobility in cities is changing at an all-time record pace. However, real and timely change in urban mobility will not happen if we fail to equip the workforce with the skills and knowledge to implement these changes in real life. This session will explore how urban mobility is being disrupted through skills and knowledge acquisition in Europe, notably through investment from EIT Urban Mobility.

Which actions can be done to mitigate energy poverty and accelerate the energy transition?

Cities are dealing with the challenge of ensuring affordable housing for every citizen. The pandemic has emphasized the relevance of having a quality home, and more than ever, the link between accommodation, safety, and health is becoming crucial. But innovative housing models in terms of sustainability and shared areas are not always accessible, accentuating inequality among the citizens. How could cities work on having no citizens without an affordable home?

According to the World Health Organization, it is expected that, by 2050, people in the world over 60 years will represent 22% of the global population. Costa Rica is aging faster, and they have created an Age-Friendly Cities network to become more inclusive and friendly cities for the elderly. As cities see how their community is increasingly living longer, how can they work to ensure the quality of life for the young and senior population?

Save to calendar 17-11-2022 10:30 17-11-2022 11:30 Europe/Madrid Drees & Sommer: Inclusive Digital Habitats

How can we harvest collective urban intelligence? Are digital tools helping us to generate urban scenarios and to encourage the implementation potential of projects with the insight of local and international knowledge? By understanding the condition and history of a particular city through interactive components that include collaborative input allows anyone to participate in contributing to their knowledge of the city - which would ordinarily go without record. Therefore, are we able to respond to the critique that the smart city paradigm endangers privacy and excludes vulnerable groups? Can we claim that digital tools help us to create genuinely inclusive strategies for our habitats, where multi-disciplinary, inter-sectorial and divergent thinking combines both “bottom-up” and “top-down” approaches.
