Thematic debate on the POST-UNLOCK project @ URBANPROMO 2021 edition - Venice, 15 September 2021

URBANPROMO 2021, on Wednesday 15 September from 14:30 to 17:30 at Università Iuav di Venezia (room Calzolari-Peano), will host a conference on the project POST-UNLOCK: From territorial vulnerabilities to local resilience.

POST-UNLOCK is a research project of Dist/PoliTo (Miur Department of Excellence 2018-2022) that aims to implement the “post carbon city” model through an ideal-typical scenario of territorial innovation at 2030. The project starts from the management of the post-emergency phase of Covid-19 and aims to overcome the engineering approach to risk. This is possible by applying a multidisciplinary analysis methodology and a territorial approach to risk, developing interdisciplinary knowledge systems and initiating climate governance processes, based on the analysis of local vulnerabilities and the definition of adaptation strategies.

These methodologies aim to support institutions in the challenge of resilience towards new models of “adaptive governance”.They also intend to test a model of planning and organization of the territory focused on adaptation and based on Local Resilience Units to promote place-based strategies for adaptation of territories.
The conference, which is part of the communication actions of the research, intends to open the discussion on the themes and the first advances of the research with some discussants from outside the working group.
