Event details

The International Conference on Green Urbanism will be held in Italy during the time period from 14th to 16th of October 2016. And will be discussing the following:


The world is in the midst of a disturbance of a growingly consuming population, and environmental degradation, which produces many environmental challenges such as:

  • Global climate change
  • Excessive fossil fuel dependency
  • The growing demand for energy

All likely to be major challenges of the 21st century and one of the greatest problems facing humanity.

In this context, urban design is the fundamental principle of how to shape our cities. Because almost half the energy consumed is used in cities and urban built-up areas, it is necessary to avoid mistakes in urban design at early stages in order to own more sustainable cities.

The 1st international conference on Green Urbanism reflects upon practical strategies focusing on increasing sustainability beyond and within the scope of individual buildings.


The conference provides a context for:

  • A general debate about the regeneration of the city Centre.
  • Discusses how urbanism is affected by the paradigms of ecology.

IEREK organizes this conference to deal with:

  • Cross-cut issues in architecture and urban design
  • Address the question of how we can best cohesively integrate all aspects of:
  • Energy systems
  • Transport systems
  • Waste and water management
  • Passive and active strategies

Into contemporary urban design and improved environmental performance of our cities.


The significance of this conference lies in the pressing need for an integration of sustainability principles in the urban design process of cities and the general need for a sustainable city development. It will be of particular relevance to the rapid urban growth of developing cities.
