About this event

Responsive Cities: Adapting under pressure

As we know, cities all around the world are under pressure to deliver a positive place to live, to work and to play, providing venues and services for their citizens and visitors.

Those with a strong and distinctive historic legacy often have considerable additional pressures on their fabric, previously from national and international tourism activity and now in the context of the pandemic and climate emergency, more about public health, economic and social issues, and sustainable recovery.

But cities under such pressure are fighting back. From Venice, Lisbon and Barcelona, to Paris, Amsterdam and Oslo, they are looking to re-balance their cities, with approaches to housing and homelessness, transport and streets, placemaking and events, to make them work better for all, and become healthier, more convivial places.

Innovation includes new policies on transit expansion, on new public spaces, on cycling infrastructure, and on diversifying use and activity of the historic fabric. Leading cities under pressure are completely re-programming their cities, including their centres and neighbourhoods.

This year’s Congress will provide an opportunity to explore and interrogate these issues, with particular reference to Edinburgh, together with representatives from cities around the world who have encountered and tackled these issues.

The Academy is holding its annual international Congress (virtually) in Edinburgh, from 16-18 June 2021, with its partner, the City of Edinburgh Council.

As always, Congress will be full of interesting and inspirational speakers, tours of the city centre and surrounding neighbourhoods, problem-solving workshops including an Urban C:Lab and YU Sprint, and much more.

Open to all – so please join us and be part of the recovery movement addressing the challenges and pressures faced by our neighbourhoods, towns and cities.
