As attention in urban development is shifting from the ‘what’ of interventions and desired outcomes to the ‘how’ of facilitating urban change, this event explored contemporary experiences in urban policy and design tactics.
It acknowledged that tactical questions such as appropriate timing, communicating key benefits, navigating stakeholders and making use of demonstration projects and experimentation have become a key area of urban leadership and governance innovation.
This public lecture and debate contrasted experiences with urban tactics linked to social urbanism and transport policy cutting across a range of innovative cities including Medellin, Mexico City, Vienna and Stockholm.
