A YUFE Academy Event
By 2050, cities will accommodate more than 2,5 billion new inhabitants and almost 2/3 of the human population will live in cities. In particular in Western-Europe, the vast majority of the population will live in cities or city-regions. Quality of life and wellbeing will be largely determined on how we manage, design and plan our cities.
In this lecture, professor Tom Coppens will discuss the challenges associated with urban growth and address some of the principles of sustainable urban design and planning, with a focus on the Flanders regio.
