DDC Talks: Who Sets Direction for our Future Cities?


‘Nations talk. Cities act’ has been a well-known statement for several years. But who are the central actors in cities when we want to achieve impactful and long-lasting changes?


Do we have to rely entirely on local city governments to set the goal and drive the change effectively, or is it crucial that the transformation grows from other local needs?


This online talk will explore the potential of a mission-driven approach to urban transformation and dive into different learnings and experiences from the European project CENTRINNO. You will receive a streaming link to the online talk the day before.
