About the Event
Who profits from heritage?
Communities, capital and urban space
We invite you to join more than 100 urban thinkers and practitioners from across Europe in the Praga district of Warsaw for the 7th edition of the Informed Cities Forum. The 2019 edition will zoom in on urban regeneration processes, examining their real and potential impacts on people and places. Building on the experience of the OpenHeritage project and the Actors of Urban Change community, the forum will explore new ideas and tools to empower local communities and safeguard urban commons.
The event will gather a mix of urban activists, social entrepreneurs, local and European policy makers, researchers, investors and funders to exchange and learn from one another in a unique arena. The aim is to bring together practical urban regeneration experience with financial and regulatory expertise in order to increase social, economic and environmental benefits for our communities.
The 7th edition of the Informed Cities Forum is co-produced by OpenHeritage and Actors of Urban Change. The event is co-organised by the City of Warsaw with support from the Forget Heritage INTERREG Central Europe project.
We connect people working on new forms of sustainable urban development in Europe, and promote a culture of co-creation as a driving force for positive change.
