On the 28th of March there will be an alumni event «Smart Sustainable Cities: Ecology, ICT, Architecture» in Kyiv, Ukraine.

We kindly invite all alumni interested in the topic of sustainable development of the communities: ecologists, engineers, architects, designers, activists, etc. Registration may be completed following the link: bit.ly/March28th.

Languages of the event are English and Ukrainian.

At our event Swedish, Danish, Ukrainian and Russian specialists will present the results of their research and work. Special attention will be given to the practices in Sweden and Ukraine.

Sweden may be a good role model for Ukraine. It was able to reorganize its economic model, enhance the efficiency in practically all spheres of societal life and significantly improve the overall ecosystem in which the people live and interact with each other.

On the contrary Ukraine is suffering from the consequences of the degradation of the environment, ineffective use of energy, old approaches to managing and developing the communities. At the moment we can see the increased attention in Ukraine to the following topics: urban studies, IT, ecology in the cities, so the discussion planned on the 28th of March will be of great current interest.

The event will be organized in the “Dom Pashkov” in vul. Melnykova, 83D, 7th floor (in front of KIMO, u-station Lukiyanivska).
