About Urban & Environmental Theory Session
Organized in the framework of the MAS in Urban and Territorial Design, the sessions see invited guests address the theme of the semester: “Counterprojects of Coexistence”. The sessions, offering a combination of theoretical positions and professional design experience, address the challenges of spatial, social and energy transition through various contributions: from human geography, urban studies, spatial design, environmental studies and system thinking. Ranging in scale from the global to the local, focusing on the urban commons and ecological transition, each session sees the guests present their work followed by a moderated discussion together and with the audience.

How to transform cities together
Klaus Overmeyer
More than ever, cities today are confronted with significant changes: climate change, migration, demographic shifts, mobility transitions, resource scarcity. A grand plan no longer serves us in this situation. We need a shared compass on how to live better with fewer resources. Thinking big with bottom-up strategies can help propel us into action.
