Cultural heritage in cities, while valuable in itself, is also something that can yield major social and economic dividends. In this webinar, we will hear from three expert practitioners from Europe, Turkey and China on how cities can leverage tangible and intangible heritage for more cohesive societies and increased attractiveness for business and tourism.

How can local government policy encourage bottom-up initiatives? How can vacant heritage site be repurposed to incubate SMEs and spur local innovation? How do you strike a balance between conservation and reuse, between supporting the local community and gentrification, between tourism and over-tourism? Find out in our webinar on Thursday 6 February at 10.00 CET.

The European funded project TRANS-URBAN-EU-CHINA invites you to join an hour of lively conversation with experts from:

  • The Norwegian University of Science and Technology
  • The China Academy of Urban Planning and Design
  • İzmir Metropolitan Municipality
