CPH:DOX 'Citizen Jane' Screening & Panel Debate at Space10

Date(s): 
Saturday 18.03.2017
Location: 
Space10, Flæsketorvet 10, 1711 Copenhagen V

IFHP in collaboration with the annual CPH:DOX festival and Space10 invites you to our 2nd screening of the documentary 'Citizen Jane', which will be followed by a panel debate with 4 Copenhagen-based stakeholders.
Cities are popular as never before. Today 54% of the world population live in urban areas. By 2030 this number is expected to rise to 70%. But how can we accommodate so many in a limited space with limited resources, and still assure the best conditions are provided and that liveable cities are guaranteed for everyone?
 
IFHP in collaboration with the CPH:DOX and Space 10 invites you to a debate on the topic of architecture, urbanism and the good city life in the inspiring room of Space10, where we are getting together to discuss the future of life in our cities.
 
We will be hosting 2 screenings of Citizen Jane during the 2017 CPH:DOX festival. If you cannot attend this second one, please join us on the 17th of March
 
 

The event: Screening & Panel Debate 

After the screening of “Citizen Jane: Battle for the City”, there will be a debate dedicated to the challenges and future perspectives we have for urban planning and urban living.
 
What are the differences today compared to Jane Jacobs’ days and what are the challenges that cities are facing in the 21st century?
 
In the debate IFHP president Flemming Borreskov will talk about his perspectives on “Cities for People/People for Cities” and his take on implementing the NUA (The UN Habitat's New Urban Agenda).
 
The discussion will be open for the audience to ask questions and share their thoughts. A city for people is a city where everyone is welcome to share and participate, so join us in the discussion on how we can make cities better places for all.

Description of the documentary 'Citizen Jane: Battle for the City'

Architecture, urbanism and the fight for the good (city) life. The author Jane Jacobs and her ideas are more relevant than ever before.
Can you imagine a motorway ploughing through Manhattan? And that SoHo doesn't exist? This is easily how things might have ended up, had the author and activist Jane Jacobs not fought for her beloved hometown of New York. In the 1950s and 60s, when the property magnate Robert Moses was exerting his powerful influence, Jacobs stood up against a male- and finance-dominated construction industry, which was obsessed with modern, monumental master plans. Both as an activist and as the author of the architecture classic 'The Death and Life of Great American Cities', Jacobs was a true pioneer who was so far ahead of her time that her radical – and in fact deeply humanistic – ideas have only just started to enjoy a breakthrough in architectural mainstream. 'Citizen Jane' is thus not only a deeply intriguing story about a courageous woman's fight for her city. It is also a professionally serious and still relevant masterpiece about architecture, urbanism and the good (city) life.
