It is not the goal of the conference to come up with ready-made solutions that may prove outdated tomorrow or perhaps next year, but rather to discuss the process of urban transformation, the ongoing design, development and governance of cities that are to be resilient and agile, no matter what happens. But how do we reach that goal and what challenges do we have to be prepared to face?
