The Urban Planet

RESEARCH AND ACTION ON SUSTAINABLE URBAN DEVELOPMENT FROM AROUND THE WORLD

On 18 May 2017, the IIIEE brought together researchers at Lund University to present and discuss ongoing projects on urban living labs, urban sharing, urban lighting and more, and presentations by alumni from around the world working with sustainable urban development. It created a space for critical discussions and reflections on cities, innovation and sustainability. This event was supported by Lund University Urban Arena and was part of the Sustainability Week during the Lund University 350 jubilee
