Resilient, Healthy and Sustainable Cities

Most of the EU cities are currently facing the so-called urban paradox: although they are often characterized by high concentration of economic activities, employment and wealth, they are increasingly facing environmental and economic crisis, social disaggregation and climate change related impacts, that are threatening citizens’ health and wellbeing.

Our research tackles these threats by envisioning new participatory city planning and design approaches at the intersection of social, cultural, digital and nature-based innovations, aiming at increasing citizens’ health and wellbeing and cities’ resilience.
