Välkommen på halvdagskonferensen "The Transitional City in research"


Tisdagen den 29:e november bjuder IBF och SLU in till en gemensam forskningskonferens på tema "Omställningsstaden".

The Transitional City in research - How will we reduce our climate footprint in urban environments?

A comprehensive and rapid transition in consumption and production is needed to reach the climate goal of holding global warming under 2 degrees. Achieving a climate-friendly transition in the world's cities is central for this goal. It concerns our lifestyles, way of building, and residence practices. How should people in urban environments live if they are to achieve a reasonable climate footprint? How should the transition be done, and what are the barriers and supports for change? Which attempts to pursue this transition should be done by national governments, cities, social movements, and others? How successful are they? 


Tisdag 29 november kl. 13:15-17:15


Institutet för bostads- och urbanforskning (IBF) , Trädgårdsgatan 18, Uppsala.
