A Guide for Cities to Address Environmental Impact of Cultural Events

October 30, 2020 @ 3:30 pm - 3:55 pm

On 27-30 October 2020, ROCK invites you to join its Open Knowledge Week “Cultural Heritage Leading Urban Futures”, a virtual conference for city officers, policy-makers, urban researchers, cultural actors and civic changemakers. This digital event marks the closure of ROCK, a European-funded project led by the City of Bologna and engaging 33 partners – including Julie’s Bicycle – across 13 countries in exploring how cultural heritage can be the driving force behind urban sustainability.

Over the past three years, ten ROCK cities – Athens, Bologna, Cluj-Napoca, Eindhoven, Lisbon, Liverpool, Lyon, Skopje, Turin and Vilnius – have worked with service providers and knowledge brokers to test and advance numerous tools and approaches aimed at shaping sustainable, heritage-led urban futures. At the ROCK Open Knowledge Week, interdisciplinary research will meet innovative action, enabling the dissemination of knowledge and the creation of new synergies at European level.

The event offers an extensive programme of 20 sessions engaging 50+ speakers and hundreds of participants over 4 days, including a session led by Julie’s Bicycle on the environmental sustainability of outdoor cultural events.
