Time: 10:00 – 15:30 / 16:00
Date: 21.5.2019
Venue: Eurooppa-sali, Kamppi, Malminkatu 16, Helsinki

Tervetuloa kuulemaan asiantuntijapuheenvuoroja ja keskustelemaan tavoista ennakoida kaupungistumisen tulevaisuutta. Paikalla on aihepiirin huippututkijoita Hollannista ja Saksasta sekä URMI-hankkeen tutkijoita ja muita kotimaisia asiantuntijoita. Päivän aiheena ovat niin kaupungistumisen suunnat kuin niiden ennakointi. Mitä hyötyä erilaisista tulevaisuusharjoitteista on? Mitkä kaupungistumisen ajurit ovat pysyviä, mitkä väistyviä ja mitkä vasta tekevät tuloaan?

How should we try to anticipate the future of urbanization? What are the drivers of European urbanization in the coming decades? How should we make sense of them in the Finnish context?

In the foresight seminar organized by the URMI project, we will hear presentations on urban dynamics as well as on possibilities to anticipate their future. There will be two keynote speeches by foreign guests, both top-notch scholars in their fields:  

Arjan van Timmeren is the Professor of Environmental Technology at TU Delft Department of Urbanism, in the Netherlands. He is specialised on urban dynamics and theories of complexity.

Kerstin Cuhls works as a scientific project manager at the Frauenhofer Institute in Karlsruhe, Germany, where her projects deal with Futures Research methods and technology foresight in Asia and Europe.

The seminar includes also inputs from Finnish experts. They will present recent contributions in the field of urban futures as the basis for discussion.

  • The regionalised data trajectories, with examples including the Population Forecast for 10 urban regions by MDI, published in February 2019.
  • The Urbanization Scenarios produced in cooperation of the URMI and BEMINE projects, published by Demos Helsinki in late 2018
  • Shifting trajectories on carbon neutral cities: Combining explorative and normative scenarios, based on work done at Aalto University Department of Design

    onko puhuttava englanniksi, se ei onnistu

    • Otto-Wille Koste kirjoitti:

      Esitykset ovat pääasiassa englanniksi, mutta ryhmätilanteissa varmaan pärjää myös suomeksi.
