April 21, 2021, from 14.00-15.15 CET (12.00-13.15 UTC)
"Planning for Sustainable Underground Spaces"
In this webinar, we will be exploring how ITACUS is working on an urban underground future. The ITACUS co-chairs Han Admiraal (Enprodes Management Consultancy) and Antonia Cornaro (Amberg Engineering) will be co-hosting this webinar and will be joined by several ITACUS Steering Board members.
Hear from Dr Marilu Melo, a human geographer at the University of New South Wales, Australia, Dr Loretta von der Tann, geo-engineer and currently assigned to NGI (Norwegian Geotechnical Institute), and from Shana Debrock, policy advisor working for the Department of the Environment and Spatial Planning of the Flanders Government, Belgium. The three professionals will hold a thought-provoking conversation on the essence of planning underground spaces. Is it about geology? Is it about urban planning? Or is it about something different altogether?
In addition, you can hear from the ITACUS lead on urban sustainability, Dr Chrysothemis Paraskevopoulou, a lecturer at the University of Leeds UK on how underground spaces can contribute to sustainable development and help met the global goals set by the United Nations.
The ITACUS co-leads for the Young Professional's Think Deep Program (YPTDP) Petr Salak (Dr Sauer & Partners, Israel), and Rosanne Verloop (Amberg Engineering, Switzerland), will give you a unique insight into the program in which ITACUS collaborates with ISOCARP, the International Society of City and Regional Planners.
Grab this opportunity to hear from experts in the field of urban underground space as part of the Hagerbach NXT 50 series of webinars "Innovation, Inspiration, and Demonstration of Underground Spaces".
