Seminar on the role of sustainability and co-creation in addressing the needs and potentials of complex human settlements.
Seminar om bæredygtighed og co-creation’s rolle i at adressere behov og potentialerne i komplekse menneskelige bosættelser. 

Can refugee camps and informal settlements overcome their temporary but de facto permanent reality and become flourishing sustainable settlements? How can sustainability and the inclusive and democratic participation of residents play a role in improving the conditions of these complex urban and rural realities? This seminar will take us through a philosophical and sociopolitical dialogue about the people’s right to have a central role in the development of the places where they live, work and play.
