The ICC is pleased to invite all members of the national and international networks to take part in the ICC webinar Gentrification and Public Space - Interaction in crises and beyond. The webinar will take the upcoming ICC policy brief on gentrification as a starting point; it will further give special attention to the exceptional circumstances that Covid-19 has created in the public space and raise questions on how to increase interaction in the time of social and physical distancing.
The webinar will focus on the following three topics:
- Presentation of the ICC policy brief on gentrification to be published in June 2020
- Gentrification in the shadow of the Covid-19 crises
- Interaction in public space in times of social distancing
The webinar will be presented and moderated by ICC experts from Mela Social Enterprise. Mela is an expert on public space and gentrification and will offer an introduction to each topic, followed by a discussion between participants.
When: Thursday 11 June 14.30-17.00 CET
Who: All national and international cities in the ICC Network. We invite especially representatives working with related topics such as urban planning and ICC City Coordinators.
Working language: English
An invitation and information on how to register for the event has been sent to all member cities and coordinators via email.
Has the topic spiked your interest? Does your city have good solutions or particular challenges related to gentrification? The ICC research into the topic continues throughout May, and we are happy to receive your contribution to feed the policy brief. You can reach us through the contact from on the ICC webpage.
We look forward to e-meeting you in June!
