Next Tuesday, October 31, from 15:30 to 17:00, we look forward to seeing you at the itdUPM for a new (im)probable dialogue on how collaboration between universities, municipalities, and civil society organizations from Europe and Ukraine can drive a climate-neutral and equitable reconstruction of Ukrainian cities.
This is the goal of UniCities, an Erasmus+ initiative launched by the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden (KTH), UPM, and a dozen Ukrainian universities and civil society organizations, with the aim of promoting a carbon-neutral and fair reconstruction of Ukrainian cities, in line with the European mission ‘100 climate-neutral cities by 2030.’
Come and meet the main experts and partners of this innovative program that will speak about it:
- Olga Kordas, Program Director of Viable Cities and professor of sustainable urban development at the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden (KTH), who will provide insights into sustainable urban development and initiatives for climate-neutral cities.
- Yuliia Bandura, Director of the Development and Project Implementation Center of the Association of Ukrainian Cities (AUC).
- Veronika Khudolei, Rector of the International Scientific and Technical University (ISTU) in Ukraine.
During the dialogue, we will discuss how to promote collaboration, knowledge exchange, and partnerships to drive an alternative reconstruction of Ukrainian cities. We will gain valuable insights into sustainable urban development, the role of universities, and the impact of the UniCities program on Ukraine’s climate transition.
