IE School of Architecture and DesignRe_Solution: A Conversation with City Leaders Who Made a Change, a series where former mayors from around the world: Stockholm, Athens, Helsinki, Toronto, will discuss how to make our cities better places with players from the public and the private sectors, as well as the academic world. The goal is to lead and promote the conversation about the complex field of city-making.
The school understands cities holistically as sites of transformation in the built, natural and digital world. As an educational institution, we want to generate knowledge and research and welcome discussions that lead to the transformation towards building sustainable cities for the future.
