Four experts participated in the panel: Piotr Uhle, member of the city council in Wrocław, Agata Dąbska from the urban think tank OdNowa and Toni Crisolli from Smart Cities Education Initiatives in Belgrade. All panellists stressed that city transportation is crucial for modern cites. The role of new technologies was underlined alongside with good planning: hi tech is not enough and it can’t be reduced to modern gimmicks. Piotr Uhle described project “Green Light for Wrocław” that he co-designed to allow better car flow in the metropolis of Lower Silesia. Agata Dąbska was calling for a dialogue between diverse users of streets: drivers, bikers and pedestrians. Toni Crisolli shared his expertise in involving diverse stakeholders in looking for the best solutions for cities.

    Second panel was on “Health, Ecology & Economy: Urban Life Style”. It was moderated by Tomasz Janowski from Instytut Nowoczesności, with participation of Paweł Rabiej from Nowoczesna and Tomasz Cydejko from Miasto2077.

    Paweł Rabiej focused on the role of urban movements and citizens themselves in shaping new urban space and creating a city that people want to live. Tomasz Cydejko developed an idea of a city as a coherent space united by a master plan and community-making institutions like universities or medical centres that influence development of the entire regions.
