Intercult’s Seminar on 06th of May - Transforming Urban Waterfronts

In connection with Europe Day 2020 Intercult’s series of webinars will connect cities and  scholars across Europe to present research and practice on facing climate change and sea level rise.

For urban waterfronts this is a major challenge and a threat not only to environment and economy, but also to cultural heritage, recreation and social life. This webinar invites partners from S.O.S Climate Waterfront Horison 2020 MarieCurie ( where Intercult is a partner) to share knowledge and ideas from transnational collaborations.

S.O.S Climate Waterfront is an interdisciplinary project that aims to explore waterfronts in Europe that are facing climate change. The project collects different disciplines to create new strategies for sustainable solutions for infrastructure and urban planning in Europe. Three cities and four partners in the project will present their work and research on transforming urban waterfronts, from Lisbon, Thessaloniki and Stockholm

The webinar is open to watch for everyone, but if you wish to participate - we ask you to register by email to: europadirekt@intercult.se.

It will be streamed live on Intercult's Facebook page and River//Cities Facebook page.
