Community Architects

At our online symposium at the UIA World Architecture Congress in Rio de Janeiro in July 2021, keynote speakers and panelists explored the connections between urban design, food systems and health. They discussed connections between communities and shared resources, and lessons from Copenhagen were shared to inspire sustainable development initiatives in Rio de Janeiro. Forward-looking initiatives, e.g., the interactive exhibition platform Commons & Communities, were launched as part of the overall initiative that seeks to increase the diversity of voices in sustainable urban development contexts – particularly in a global South/North perspective. Around 300 people attended the symposium, and footage of the event is available on one of our YouTube channels (in English and Portuguese), as well as on the UIA 2021 RIO’s website.
