Participation in Urban planification

25 MAY

Workshop Facilitator:
Almudena Garrido
Robert Alcock

Duration: 1 hour 30′

How can people participate in making their city a better place? How is it possible to make neighbourhoods greener and more sustainable? What is the role of ecology and gender in defining the urban experience?

In this session participants will discuss these and other related questions, especially in the context of the Ribera de Deusto y Zorrozaurre and the experience of the facilitators as residents and activists involved in urbanism from the bottom up, in the face of a global trend towards mega projects and top-down planning.
