URBAN CHANGE TALK Porto: Do It Together!

On 17 February, this year's second public panel of the MitOst cooperation programme Actors of Urban Change takes place in Porto. On the agenda: discussing cross-sectoral collaboration as sustainable method to design city spaces!

The URBAN CHANGE TALK in Porto takes its start from two DIY citizens’ initiatives – the Critical Housing Lab in Porto and VivaCidade in Aveiro - both supported by the Europe-wide programme Actors of Urban Change. Together with the audience, the panelists will critically discuss the question to what extent self-empowered citizens have the possibility to change their city and the way administrations, citizens and local businesses interact. 

Opening by Arq. Cláudia Costa Santos, President of the Conselho Directivo Regional do Norte da Ordem dos Arquitectos.
