Short Call Abstract:

The applicants can select between three topics when developing their projects. The three topics can be combined when relevant for the projects purpose, aim and methodology:

Topic 1: Experimentation and co-creation for a beautiful and sustainable urban future

The ambitions for the transformation of our societies are high. To be able to deliver new ways to build sustainable, climate neutral neighbourhoods it is fundamental to use co-creation and radical mobilisation between disciplines, sectors, civil society, bodies of knowledge, etc.

Key elements: Inclusiveness; co-creation; experimentation; (re)design; (re)develop.

Topic 2: Transformation to sustainable cities/urban transformation

To anticipate anthropogenic effects, it is as important to integrate issues of design, consumption behaviours, circular economy, energy use, mobility patterns, waste management, and management of existing built environments – as it is to develop and design urban areas, neighbourhoods, streets, squares, etc. that promote more sustainable mobility patterns, renewable energy use and reduced consumption.

Key elements: Residential and public environments; architecture and design; biodiversity; ecological footprint.

Topic 3: Designing Inclusive, Liveable and Green Neighborhoods

There is a need for more knowledge and new solutions that bring into focus such conflicts, accountability, legitimacy, justice, trust, consequences, and opportunities that come with democracy and participation. To a high degree, public spaces and natural and cultural environments should be designed and used in ways that foster co-creation, social inclusion, and a sense of community.

Key elements: Different interests; democracy and participation; civil society.
