On Wednesday, January 31st, the event “The Connected and Sustainable Cities of the Future” takes place, organized by the Grande Milano Study Center, with the participation of Stefano Boeri.
The event, which appoints Laura Castelletti, the mayor of Brescia, and Stefano lo Russo, the mayor of Turin, as “Ambassadors of Grande Milano nel Mondo,” also features contributions from Mayor Marco Bucci of Genoa, Mayor Giorgio Gori of Bergamo, and other figures from various fields, including Marco Tronchetti Provera, Executive Vice President of Pirelli, Antonio Calabrò, President of Assolombardia Association, Anna Scavuzzo, Deputy Mayor of Milan, Stefano Vittorio Kuhn, Chief Retail & Commercial Banking of Bper Banca, and Stefano Boeri. Boeri’s intervention focuses on comparing the urban, architectural, and social situations of the cities involved in the dialogue.
“Today, Europe and Italy are facing the combination of two challenges: on one hand, the significant challenge of climate change and global warming; on the other hand, the major challenge is undoubtedly social polarization or the increase in absolute poverty in urban contexts. We tend to perceive these two challenges as separate urban issues, but they are not. There are many ways today to explore, through architecture and urban transformation policies, the intersections between these two challenges, which are not only linked to the fact that those who suffer the most lethal consequences of climate change today are the most vulnerable and defenseless populations,” stated Stefano Boeri.
The event will be presented by Roberto Rosia of Polo, a journalist and correspondent for RAI.
