The future of cities: what risks and opportunities for the environment from new technology developments?
What is the future bringing in terms of risks and opportunities for environmental sustainability in the Urban areas? A number of EU experts at the interface between science and policies have recently identified 8 emerging environmental issues which may bring risks and/or benefits to Urban environments. Those issues include for example urban food production, green urban design, airborne urban transport and the impact of light planning on humans and ecosystems. Citizens are invited to join for a participatory workshop, where they will be able to discuss, prioritise and vote those issues and their related risks and opportunities for the environment
