A new generation of citymakers is shaping the transition to the next city.
Out now: Actors of Urban Change Magazine Nature, community, spaces: The future of European cities
Read insights from the 10 Actors of Urban Change projects that just completed the program, and how they are shaping the future of their neighborhoods across Europe.
Yesterday, we explored the port city of Rijeka and learned from @rijeka2020 and @deltalab_rijeka about an area called “Sweet and Salt” where the river meets the sea, an industrial area with many abandoned spaces that they are now reclaiming for the local community. One of their plans is to restore access for residents to the seaside and riverside for swimming, leisure and more — through simple and cheap interventions, using mostly what is already there. Here are some impressions of the day by the best ever @panosgeorgiou ⛵️🌊
