BLOXHUB Mornings: Beyond Urban Segregation

Date(s): 
Tuesday 08.11.2016
Location: 
Fæstningens Materialgård, Frederikholms Kanal 30, Copenhagen.

November 8: BLOXHUB mornings is an inspiring series of morning events focusing on innovation and growth within the field of architecture, construction, urban development and design. This time: a historical perspective on deprived neighborhoods in Denmark.
Denmark is recognized as one of the happiest countries in the world and Copenhagen one of the most livable cities. Nevertheless, throughout the last decade politicians have become increasingly concerned about residential segregation and especially about deprived neighborhoods. What do we know about these neighborhoods in Denmark?
 
Has the residential composition of deprived neighborhoods changed over time? And what are the dynamics behind residential segregation? “Beyond Segregation – A historical perspective on deprived neighborhoods in Denmark” explores these questions by presenting facts and discussing opportunities to approaches and strategies.
 
This BLOXHUB morning will also be IFHP's contribution to the World Town Planning Day Online Conference. Each year planners around the world engage in activities on World Town Planning Day in an effort to raise awareness of the importance of planning in their communities.
