This COP27 side event is organised by the SUR Lab Bocconi and cambiaMO|changing Mobility with UN-Habitat.

The acceleration of climate change poses relevant challenges to cities and requires their transformation to respond to future conditions and needs. Urban regeneration, fostering compact, mixed-use, sustainable mobility, and reuse and conversion to energy-efficient buildings can trigger substantial transformations by providing effective solutions toward making cities more resilient acting in key dimensions of urban sustainable development. The event aims to investigate sustainable urban regeneration processes and their capacity to mitigate climate change and improve urban resilience, considering social inclusion and gender equality dimensions.
