Habitat Research Center Day 2022
A full day dedicated to research on Urbanization

Three years. That is the time left to limit warming to around 1.5°C. Just three years to significantly reshape our use of space and natural resources, modes of production and associated practices. On the HRC day, the research center invites researchers, laboratories, as well as international research centers to participate in a series of interdisciplinary exchanges dedicated to the challenge of urbanization in transition.
