The Informed Cities Forum is a popular European interactive "un-"conference which aims to bridge the gap between research, policy-making and action in sustainable development, at and for the local level.
This year, The Forum will take place online from 26-28 October under the title "Re-purpose. Re-charge. Re-think. Heritage and e-mobility at the crossroads". It will explore how the topics of cultural heritage and electric mobility align, and how problem solving, or specific processes might be addressed differently. Some of the joint session themes include: responding to administrative hurdles, interacting with interest groups and the public and the perspective of utilising new technologies. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the individual topics of cultural heritage and electric mobility in more depth during deep dive sessions.
The Informed Cities Forum is an interactive, collaborative event, which makes use of innovative formats, and is willing to explore unconventional topics. Active participation by the audience is not just encouraged, but is required, and will be rewarded with lively and energetic discussions.
Driven by ICLEI: Local Governments for Sustainability, the 9th Informed Cities Forum is co-organised by the GreenCharge, and OpenHeritage projects. GreenCharge aims to demonstrate how technological solutions and associated business models can be integrated and deployed to overcome barriers to wide-scale adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) in Barcelona (Spain), Bremen (Germany), and Oslo (Norway). While, OpenHeritage identifies best practices of adaptive heritage re-use, develops inclusive governance models for overlooked heritage sites, and tests them in six Cooperative Heritage Labs.
