Kerstin Krellenberg "Urban Sustainability Transformations – Of climate change and other contemporary challenges"



About the talk:

In the face of climate change, the digital transformation or the current pandemic, cities are confronted with a wide range of challenges and opportunities at the same time. In order to contribute to global sustainability while being liveable for their citizens, cities are confronted with the need of more radical transformations and the development of integrated solutions that consider the complexity of cities and interwoven processes. Tackling the root causes and exploring the underlying contexts of contemporary challenges is needed.

About the speaker:

Kerstin Krellenberg works as Professor of Urban Studies at the Department of Geography and Regional Research at the University of Vienna. Her main research interests are the impacts of global environmental change on cities and, in particular, the challenges and opportunities for sustainable urban development. She pursues inter- and transdisciplinary research approaches for an integrative analysis of human-environmental-technological interactions and urban sustainability transformations.
