Augmented Urbans webinar delves into the promising and up-and-coming intersection of extended reality (XR) technologies and contemporary urban planning. Cities today are facing increasingly complex challenges — how can we plan, design and build them to be more resilient against those forces?

We explore how to apply resilience thinking to practical urban planning work, and how new technologies can assist urban planners in making public participation better for everyone.

Join us in crystallising insights from our three-year collaborative development journey. Expect insightful keynotes by leading experts and inspiring lightning talks from our project’s Local Actions in cities around the Baltic sea.
