BLOXHUB Mornings

Join us for coffee and croissants on BLOXHUB Mornings – a series of urban morning events powered by the BLOXHUB Members. The Mornings always touch upon the good city life – how do we obtain it? What is it? What kind of innovations and changes are necessary? How can collaboration across architecture, construction, digitalization and design create better city solutions?

PROGRAM:
8:00 – 8:30: Coffee & croissants
8:30 – 9.30: Talks and discussions

PLACE:
BLOXHUB Eventroom, Building C, Fæstningens Materialgård, Frederiksholms Kanal 30, 1220 Copenhagen K

During fall 2017 you will meet other professionals across disciplines in the following four events. Come join – it’s free of charge:

Date coming up: With more and more people living in cities, existing urban infrastructures come under pressure. Municipalities are facing large investments to sustain livability and future proof the cities. At the same time, digitization holds the potential to transform the ways urban systems work.


The intersection of sustainability, livability and resilience!

November 9: In a world increasingly affected by climate change, natural disasters, poor land-use and lack of housing, we bring to discussion the topic of sustainability, livability and resilience.


Turning public needs into private investment opportunities?

November 30: Cities grapple with major challenges of allocating the needed funds towards climate adaption, transition to renewable energy, social challenges linked to urbanization.
At this event we ask if Impact Investment is yet another buzz word, or is it set to revolutionize the relationship and outcomes of public/private collaboration? And, how does impact investment fit into a Danish urban development context?

 


The good, the bad and the ugly – perspectives on the sharing economy and its influence in cities

December 7: Sharing platforms, and specific companies like Airbnb, have a huge impact on the way we live, travel and perceive our cities. As the popularity of these sharing platforms grows, their effects move well beyond the individual, challenging city authorities, traditional policies, tourism boards, rental markets and wider housing perspectives.
