Urban living, climate change and sustainability: the future of our cities

How are climate change and sustainability shaping urban grids? Join us on 15 July (10:00 BRT/15:00 CET) for an insightful discussion with experts from EPFL, the WHO and USP.

Climate change is one of the global challenges for the coming decades, and mitigating its impact is becoming increasingly urgent. Urban and architectural structures need to adapt to ensure sustainable cities and ways of living. New technologies and urban planning systems will deal with the rapid changes that could have a big impact on urban living.

How are climate change and sustainable solutions shaping the future of urbanism? Which are the innovative tools and how can they be implemented?

To answer these questions, Swissnex in Brazil invited Anna Karla Almeida, PhD candidate at the EPFL to moderate a dialogue between Frédéric Dreyer (“Digitalization of Infrastructures and Cities” and “Sustainable territories” cluster manager at EPFL), Thiago Hérick de Sá (public health professional at the WHO) and Sara Lopes de Moraes (PhD candidate in Geography at the University of São Paulo).

The event will be held in English with simultaneous translation in Portuguese.
