Resilient Communities for the Global Goals

The event is co-organized by City Space Architecture and the Italian Pavilion, 17th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice Biennale. It aims to raise awareness on urban resilience, from the environmental, economic and social point of view, in relation to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda, on the occasion of Urban October promoted by UN-Habitat. The event, before the Venice Biennale was postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was scheduled on the occasion of the UN75 celebrations. An expert from the Joint Research Center of the European Commission will introduce the Agenda 2030. Invited speakers will then present case studies, already included in the research project Mapping Resilient Communities - developed by City Space Architecture for the Italian pavilion and curated by Luisa Bravo (https://www.comunitaresilienti.com/mapping-resilient-communities) - by professionals and urban activists who have experimented and implemented multidisciplinary practices of resilience, in Italy and abroad. The event also includes a thematic session coordinated by TU Delft, Netherlands, with professors and students affiliated to the Design of Public Spaces Research Group. Finally, a round table discussion is planned with the involvement of the audience attending the live streaming on the Facebook page of the Italian pavilion - https://www.facebook.com/ItalianPavilion2021.
