8.Description of the Campus: 
Open City Roma will host an Urban Thinkers Campus* in the framework of “Urbanitas”. Urbanitas is a two-day conferences and workshops event for a sustainable, resilient and active city, that will involve institutions, research organizations, companies, citizens, national and international stakeholders in order to promote the debate on the future of European cities according to the New Urban Agenda and The City We Need principles. Historical European metropolis face challenges related to economic changes and globalization, like industrial relocation and transition to knowledge economy, mass tourism and gentrification, phenomena of multiculturalism related conflicts, low urban quality and segregation of peripheries, waste and smog production. All these issues are strongly undermining the traditional life-quality of the European cities, causing social segregation, poverty and health problems in urban population. The Campus will focus on the Rome case-study, which is very significant both for the symbolic meaning of the Eternal City in the western urban culture and for the important opportunities as well as challenges due to its complexity.
The UTC will develop concrete proposals in five specific thematic areas: governance and commons, co-design, creative districts, soft mobility and circular economy.
