Next Gen: Dialogues on Urban Change 2

How do we get accustomed to discomfort, as we start sharing more and consuming less space?

Do we have to adapt to discomfort while embracing a culture of sharing and reduced personal space consumption? Or can we shift that image of discomfort to be something desirable? Psychological and behavioral adjustments are required as we transition towards a more sustainable and communal living environment. So how can we cultivate resilience, fostering a sense of collective responsibility, and embracing the inherent benefits of shared resources, that gradually acclimate our societies to living with less space.

In this session we explore what such an adaptation requires in terms of societal norms, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling and harmonious coexistence.

Students and recent graduates lead urgent dialogues at a series of events during the World Congress of Architects Copenhagen 2023 during sessions organized by Danish Architecture Center. In these sessions the young voices are not only brought to the table but will be joining the conversations and taking the lead in crucial dialogues on urban change.

This session is held Tuesday, July 4, 12:45-13:15 at the Next Gen Stage, Hall E
