Proud Cities Summit 2022 in Vilnius

 

The Proud Cities summit is the Annual Diversity Charter Conference in Lithuania and took place in Vilnius on 3 June 2022. The Summit was organised by the Lithuanian Diversity Charter and LGL in partnership with Baltic Pride. During the event the intercultural policy model was presented.

The conference featured a number of panel debates on topics related to equality, diversity and LGBTI rights. During the panel “Equality, Diversity and Inclusion: Transforming Challenges into Opportunities” the participating Mayors emphasized the importance of recognition of diversity as a tool to ensure everyone feels welcome in their city. The session especially focused on rights of the LGBTI community, as an example of residents facing discrimination and persecution. The role of cities in providing recognition and creating public policies which fight discrimination was raised, together with the need for visibility and political commitment to build more inclusive societies.

Now cities are faced with heightened geopolitical tensions, alongside increased violence, demonstrations and divisions following, among other things, the COVID-19 pandemic, the extreme weather events associated with climate change, the rise of alt-right and left movements, fallen democracies, reinvigorated authoritarianism and unequal treatment of migrants.

Web conference: Organised crime and urban violence

 

14 September, 14:00-15:00 CET

While many traditional indicators of urban violence rates, such as homicide and robbery, are globally decreasing, crimes and the fear of crime such as violence against women, organised crime, and discriminatory violence against vulnerable groups continue to be a major threat to urban security and social cohesion. Although organised crime and urban violence are international phenomena, criminal groups are constantly adapting to local environments and contexts to guarantee successful operations and the longevity of their networks. Similarly, the experience of these phenomena and strategies taken to prevent it are different in each national context, for example in Europe and the United States. Each local experience brings with it a wealth of information that can be used to better understand the root causes of organised crime and urban violence, thus to create more effective policies to counter the phenomena.

The World Urban Forum (WUF) is the premier global conference on sustainable urbanization.

Towns and cities generate 80 per cent of global GDP and provide our creative hubs and centres of innovation. But they also bear the brunt of every kind of crisis and are home to one billion urban poor living in informal settlements. It is therefore very important that we get cities right. But how exactly? What kind of cities are needed to ensure greater sustainability, equity, and shared prosperity in the future? What will those cities look like?

These are the core issues that will be discussed at the Eleventh Session of the World Urban Forum (WUF11) in Katowice, Poland from 26 to 30 June, convened by UN-Habitat, the organisation

New - Urban Mobility Days 2022

 

Following in the footsteps of previous successful conferences, this year’s theme is “Moving people and goods more sustainably”. More than 70% of Europeans live in cities, and urban areas account for around 23% of the EU’s GHG transport emissions. If we are to achieve ambitious climate targets, transforming urban mobility will be critical.

Across three days, policymakers, local authorities, academics, NGOs, urban transport practitioners, and urban planners convene to traverse the length and depth of sustainable urban mobility, examining the challenges and solutions at hand.

eHUBS conference: Building hubs for sustainable and liveable cities

 

eHUBS are starting to play an important part in the development of sustainable and liveable cities. As the shift to more sustainable transport becomes increasingly urgent, we must develop services which provide a real last-mile alternatives to the private passenger car. This is where eHUBS come in. An eHUB is an on-street location where electric shared mobility services, from escooters, to ebikes and cargo bikes can be found and used. These mobility hubs have the potential to significantly change the future of urban mobility, creating accessible, affordable and centralised shared mobility services. In this conference, we share experiences and exchange ideas about the current use and future of eHUBS.

The conference will explore the role of eHUBS, the lessons learned from cities pioneering them and opportunities for the future found by universities. Across two days, we hear from local authorities, universities, and mobility experts, sharing knowledge and inspiring their peers.

Webinar: Planning for Innovative Urban Mobility in Jersey City

 

Wednesday, June 22

Access to frequent and reliable transit has long been a challenge outside the downtown core in Jersey City, New Jersey. Although the tristate area is generally known for comprehensive mass transportation infrastructure, these fixed lines have not always served all Jersey City residents equally. In 2020, Mayor Steven Fulop and his team at City Hall experimented with a new solution to this critical issue of equity and access using tech-enabled microtransit: a mode that differs from buses and subways by facilitating shared rides you can book on-demand from your smartphone, or by phoning a call center.

But launching a new transit mode doesn’t happen overnight. That’s why Mayor Fulop and his team partnered with TransitTech company Via to tackle the problem — which involved strategic planning and data-driven analysis to ensure equity goals are met without poaching riders from existing fixed routes.

Making use of the 15 min city

 

Levers, impact criteria and indicators for a sustainable and inclusive urban mobility system

Meeting 31 May

Since the outbreak of COVID-19, but also in context of the climate crisis, concepts that focus on the local level – promoting mixed-use, lively neighbourhoods with short distances to services and opportunities – gained more traction for cities globally. One of these concepts is the 15-minute city that has reached wide attention and has been taken up and interpreted in many different cities and contexts.

Designing Cities with Public Trust – Register For The Upcoming Webinar

 

Trust is a core element to good public services and it’s easy to forget that it goes both ways: Do residents trust their local governments? Do governments trust their residents to make policy and budgetary decisions? To build equitable cities, we must start with trust. But the big question is: HOW?

Join Tiasia O’Brien M.A, urban sociologist and Founder of Seam Social Labs and Autumn Beaudoin MSc, Research Scientist & Ethicist, in a webinar where we discuss the social construct of trust, how cities can actually design systems for continuous trust, and examples of how trust can be designed into your systems and best practices to build equitable outcomes for cities.

Call for photos - Guangzhou International Award

 

To celebrate the 10th year of the Guangzhou International Award for Urban Innovation, the Secretariat of Guangzhou Award is looking for photos that capture the course of urban development in cities. The selected entries will be displayed at the Exhibition on the 10th Anniversary of the Guangzhou Award.

The motive that moves Growing With The Cities is that cities are thickly inhabited by memories. The process of the city development has been inscribed into the urban landscape: the renovation of an old build, the launch of a new railway or the creation of a green space, are all part of this evolution. Guangzhou asks their participants what are the changes to their cities and how have you been involved in these changes?

Autonomy City Summit: Berlin

 

Berlin’s mobility system is currently in transition, both physically and digitally. This means that now is the perfect opportunity to assess the present and discuss potential challenges that will arise in the future. The Berlin City Summit is the communication space where the most important questions about the future of urban mobility are discussed and answered, and where the transformation takes shape.

The first edition of the Berlin City Summit on May 5th, 2022, will focus on mobility hubs. Mobility hubs are the physical and digital representation of the mobility system. They are the focal point of access to all modes of transport, which includes MaaS, shared services, last mile logistics, and electric energy provision and thus represent the enabling force for future mobility in Berlin. Thanks to Jelbi, Berlin has one of the largest networks of mobility hubs in Europe and is continuously working on the strategic expansion with its local partners.
