We need to learn from different local contexts to target specific architectural questions on a wider level. Challenges regarding sustainability and resilience can be core creative forces and work as catalysts for system change – and future shifts in mindsets, tools and implementation.
Everything starts in every citizens close environment, everyday life and neighbourhood – and only interdisciplinary networks and open processes will make a local and global “Togetherhood” possible.
