PhD workshop: Comparing and Contrasting Sustainable Urban Transformations
10:00 am to 12:00 pm, 03 October 2018
Room 6.04, The Bartlett, 22 Gordon Street, London WC1H 0QB
Today, there are a multitude of actors that are designing and
executing agendas to realise more sustainable, resilient, and
liveable cities. These agendas are inspired by good governance,
neoliberalisation and globalisation, grassroots activism and social
movements, and so on, that frame and act upon the cities in multiple ways.
This workshop run by Andrew Karvonen (KTH Royal Institute of Technology) provides an opportunity for urban researchers to compare and contrast the spatial, temporal, and political characteristics of these varying approaches to urban change. Through an open dialogue and discussion, attendees will share selected findings from their own research to collectively explore the various currents of contemporary urban change.
To attend you must be a current postgraduate research student at UCL, and should attend the previous day's lecture by Andrew Karvonen as part of the Urban Laboratory Lecture Series.
