The Urban Forum is a format fostering exchanges between practice and academia, in a collegial atmosphere. The safe space we offer should allow everyone to speak freely about ongoing projects and unresolved issues, to share intuitions and bold ideas they wish to bring to light and get feedback on. For this reason, the sessions will not be recorded and the audience is limited to presenters and their colleagues.
The online Urban Forum is planned as a recurring event. If you wish to take part in a future session you are warmly invited to answer our next call for projects (check our website and social media for updates).
