The European Cultural Centre conference Shaping the City: A Forum for Sustainable Cities and Communities on 12 & 13 October in Venice.

The conference will bring together architectural schools, universities and practitioners from around the world. With half of the world’s population living in cities, and that figure expected to increase to 70-percent by 2030, the conference aims to inspire sustainability-led research into urban design.

The two days will be broken into themes: built environment and architecture for the people; Urban Developments and Re-imagining the City; Innovation and Green advancements; Culture for Sustainable Cities.
