We are glad to invite you to the international seminar
The challenge of sustainable development in a country in search of new tools for territorial governance and planning”

The seminar proposes a discussion with international experts on methodologies and tools for sustainable territorial planning in the fragile contexts of the Global South.
The focus is on Mozambique, a country subjected to the effects of climate change, fragile in social and economic terms, energy production and access, food security and water management, the relationship between rural and urban areas, the integration of built and intangible assets.
These challenges require innovative design and governance tools capable of integrating aspects of variability and / or informality that represent a paradigm shift with respect to the consolidated European planning tradition. The seminar is proposed as a field for open and inter-disciplinary discussion at international level.

The seminar is the first of a cycle of encounters and an exhibition about Mozambique at Polimi. Organized in cooperation with “Boa_Ma_Nhã, Maputo” Polisocial Award 2018, funded by DAStU – Politecnico di Milano and Polisocial
