IF – Social Design for Sustainable Cities
On 23 October 2020, the IF – Social Design for Sustainable Cities conference will gather European institutions, local government, civil society, practitioners, academics, designers, and other stakeholders to explore how to create a secure and sustainable future for urban areas. One of the speakers will be Peter Andreas Sattrup from Denmark.
Presented by the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC) Cluster Warsaw, in close cooperation with the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology (PJAIT), the event will highlight and strengthen the involvement of culture and social design in the societal debate on sustainable and smart cities. EUNIC is the European Union’s network of national cultural institutes and embassies engaging in cultural relations and aims to promote cultural diversity and understanding between European societies and to strengthen international dialogue and cultural cooperation, applying a cross-cutting approach to culture that includes inter alia, arts, science, education and research.
The conference will be accompanied by workshops and complemented by a poster exhibition by international design students from 27 countries organised by the Polish-Japanese Academy of Information Technology. The exhibition will be opened and broadcast online on 21 October at 6 PM at PROM Kultury Saska Kępa, Brukselska 23 Warsaw, and can be visited until the end of October. An electronic publication on the conference and the exhibition as well as an online documentation is planned.
The event will be free and held online. In line with the international context, the conference will be held in the English language.

Dr. Peter Andreas Sattrup is advocating sustainable architecture
as senior adviser and head of sustainability at the Danish Association of Architectural Firms. Drawing on his background as a practicing architect and as a researcher, Sattrup works on documenting how architecture creates value to investors, users and societies in multiple ways that are both qualitative and quantifiable. He argues that documenting the value of design can support policy making and design decisions at all levels for the good of society, while enhancing the business potentials of architects.
