Civic Engagement, Heritage and Sustainability public debate

This debate – organized by Luiss Law, Luiss LabGov.City, Roma Tre University Architecture Department and Eutropian – will take place within the Third Consortium Meeting, a pioneering engaged and problem-based research project on community-led sustainability mechanisms for cultural heritage in cities that will take place at Luiss on the same day. The Meeting will host scholars, international, European and national public institutions to stimulate a discussion about civic engagement and sustainability (social, economic and environmental) as cross-cutting principles for cultural heritage governance and applied research to trigger sustainable development processes at the local level.
