NAERUS 2011

 

"The city at a human scale"

Hosted by the Faculty of Architecture, Universidad Politecnica de Madrid

For 12 years Naerus has been supporting innovative processes and sharing thoughts, doubts and lessons about how to orientate and apply research to tackle urban problems of the most vulnerable population. This process has showed us that there are indeed many local initiatives which are more inclusive, fair and respectful towards the planet than the dominant neoliberal model. Nevertheless they have a marginal character compared to the dimensions of the problem at a global scale.

In the next conference we intend to explore the main challenges to overcome urban inequality and to widen the scope of successful ongoing alternatives. And we intend to do it within the “development at a human scale” framework, applying its concepts to the City at a Human Scale, to promote an endogenous development and the use of plentiful and non conventional resources, such as solidarity, which increase when being shared.
