Conference theme

Ensuring a sustainable future and a better quality of life for all. These are the biggest challenges that cities and regions are called to face in the next decade. While the European Union encourages urban planners, architects, researchers and the civil society to join forces and shape “more beautiful, sustainable and inclusive forms of living together”, governments all around the world are looking for solutions to turn urban areas into greener and more digital places, resilient to the threats of pandemics and climate change.  

The fourth edition of Smart and Sustainable Planning for Cities and Regions (SSPCR 2022) is the right platform to address the key issues of today and rethink the way we live.

Come to Bolzano in July 2022 and pave the way for urban regeneration!
