IF – Social Design for Sustainable Cities

23 October 2020

People increasingly live in cities. Over the next decades the spatial and social urban fabric will be tested by densification and concentration of population, economy, capital, media, culture and knowledge.

In this context EUNIC Cluster Warsaw and the Polish Japanese Academy for Information Technology (PJAIT) organised the international Conference “IF – Social Design for Sustainable Cities”.


IF - Social Design for Sustainable Cities - the book

IF – SOCIAL DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABLE CITIES aimed to highlight and strengthen the involvement of culture and social design in the societal debate on sustainable cities. The project provided a platform for creative minds using arts as a tool for sustainable urban innovation, connecting them with practitioners, decision-makers, activists, scholars and students. Activities consisted of a conference with interactive panels, workshops for international design students and an exhibition by young artists.

Together with Biennale Warszawa, EUNIC Warsaw published its first book, devoted to the issue of universalism, which was addressed during the symposium „The Missing Denominator”.

 Our activity is focused on:

  • Reinforcing the networking of Europe’s national cultural institutes and embassies in Warsaw and generating synergies and effective partnerships within the network and with other professionals working in the field of culture and beyond in Poland.
  • Expanding the role of culture in modern society and strengthening the sense of belonging to a rich and diverse European cultural community.
  • Promoting European culture and the values that underpin it, such as cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue, gender equality and multilingualism.
  • Strengthening and maintaining cultural dialogue, exchanges and cooperation with third countries.
