Mini-Symposium: Sustainable Cities with Saskia Sassen, Carlos Moreno & Martha Thorne
What are the most urgent challenges our cities are facing today, what are the solutions?

Copenhagen Architecture Festival is proud to present the three internationally esteemed urban thinkers, Carlos Moreno, Martha Thorne and Saskia Sassen.

Through individual presentations and in conversation, they will all address the most urgent questions around creating sustainable cities.

They approach cities and the city space from very different perspectives. Yet, their analyses of the most pressing challenges our cities are currently facing present significant points of convergence: the need for more sustainable urban spaces and social practices, the need for a closer, less alienated experience of the city, unmediated by traffic, pollution, long distances, unaffordability or income inequality—the need to reclaim our cities.

But how? Which concrete steps can be taken to create better cities, for everybody? Which policies and urban designs should be implemented? Which architectural solutions can be introduced?

Cities such as Paris, Barcelona and Copenhagen constitute virtuous examples of how higher liveability can be achieved through top-down processes of urban change.
