REAL CORP 2012: RE-MIXING THE CITY – TOWARDS SUSTAINABILITY AND RESILIENCE?
CALL FOR PAPERS
RE-MIXING THE CITY – Towards Sustainability and Resilience?
There is nothing permanent except change. (Heraclitus)
Cities worldwide are facing rapid social, economic, environmental, technological and cultural changes such as: rapid urbanisation, aging of society, security issues, housing emergency, new solutions on mobility, integration of immigrants, food and water shortage, etc.
Especially in times of economic crisis and demographic changes in cities, it is necessary to think about how to best handle what we have, and therefore "RE-MIXING THE CITY" is a challenge to manage and re-combine the elements which make our modern cities in order to better respond to change.
REAL CORP 2012 in Schwechat will offer the possibility to collectively discuss a wide range of topics in different panel groups and workshops.
We kindly invite you to submit your contributions and abstracts/papers for REAL CORP 2012 to the following sections and topics:
- Can "mixed cities" be more sustainable and resilient?
- Living, working, learning, relaxing, enjoying, shopping, … – anything anywhere & anytime?
- Is it the purpose of spatial planning to "sort land uses in space"?
- Do the urban patterns and structure of our cities still meet the needs of the people in their everyday life?
- How do urban, transport and environmental technologies and solutions shape our cities?
- New faces, new approaches, new ideas – does and can migration re-mix the city?
- Time-space patterns of the 24/7 city
