Over the past decade, the concept of tactical urbanism (also known as “urban prototyping”) has gained a strong pace in many cities around the globe. Pedestrian plazas, pop-up bike lanes, pop-up parks and innovative playgrounds are just some of the examples developed by city authorities and civil society to improve the liveability of their cities. Actions are piloted in the short term to test functionality and achieve people’s acceptance of long-term solutions.
The IURC Asia and Australasia team is organising this thematic webinar, which aims to deepen urban and regional cooperation in the fields of sustainable urban development and innovation between EU and non-EU cities. The activity is a follow-up to the webinar Tactical Urbanism in Public Spaces that took place in February 2023. This time, the webinar will focus on urban transformation through street art, walkability and cycling solutions in Dublin, Malaga and Seoul.
Through interactive deep discussion on an international level, this thematic webinar aims to showcase challenges faced and solutions implemented in IURC pilot cities. The exchange may inspire other pilot cities to capitalize on these experiences and transfer knowledge to their own circumstances. The activity will strengthen the regional/global approach of the IURC programme. It will:
Foster cooperation between EU and non-EU cities interested in sharing experiences on the development of tactical urbanism
Identify potential pilot areas and stakeholders to explore cross-country actions at the city level
The programme will be introduced by the IURC team and will showcase examples from the IUR pilot cities of Dublin, Malaga and Seoul.
