Invitation to Follower City Prague Panel Discussion

More info

A city is not just concrete, steel and greenery. Its development and quality of life are influenced by an endless series of so-called soft factors such as the culture of work, relationships between people in the workplace and many others. In the Panel Discussion that takes place as part of the accompanying program to the ongoing Urbania exhibition, we will look at our approach and thinking in this context.

The opening speech will be given by James Evans by the University of Manchester (Triangulum), focusing on social geography and quantification of the soft factors of urban development.

The Panelists will be social psychologist Tomáš Vácha from the Czech Technical University, lecturer Ivona Kolínská from Mission Hero and Trinidad Fernandez from Fraunhofer IAO, project coordinator of Triangulum and deputy coordinator of the Morgenstadt Global Smart Cities Initiative.

Date: 22.01.2020 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Location: Centre for Architecture and Metropolitan Planning in Prague (Vyšehradská 51, Praha 2)

Language: English – a translation service won’t be provided
