Climate Bridge Conference

Oct. 15, 2021

Tilman Latz
Online | Piscataway, New Jersey

Inspiring Case Studies: Broadening the Climate Bridge
2:00 PM – 2:45 PM

This two-day hybrid is collaboration between the Rutgers Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability and the Rutgers Climate Institute, supported by the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany New York.

Climate change is creating new challenges for spatial and environmental planning on both sides of the Atlantic. While seeking to moderate the impacts of climate change from rising temperatures, extreme precipitation and sea level rise, the context of planning and policy must also address growing awareness of social equity and environmental justice. New Jersey’s underserved communities are similarly exposed to environmental challenges as their counterparts in the German Ruhr Region; settlement patterns and brownfield issues also show similarities.

This has become evident through 15 years of successful collaboration, including summer programs, a landscape Architecture design studio, internships for Rutgers students and publications. The conference Climate Bridge will foster a collaborative dialogue among planners, designers, scholars, public administrators, and decision makers from both sides of the Atlantic. Scholars from different universities in Germany and the United States will contribute papers and discussions that highlight interdisciplinary approaches to addressing the environmental, economic, political, and social dimensions of planning considering climate change.

Transformative Narratives

From Sept. 24, 2021 to Sept. 25, 2021

Tilman Latz
Online | Beijing, CN

Lecture in the context of The 3rd International Conference on Brownfields Regeneration & Ecological Restoration on the topic „Multidimensional, Collaborative and Innovativet“.

It is crucial that we do not regard former industrial sites as “yesterday’s” and worthless,
but discover them as significant cultural landscapes for the people! Latz+Partner has discovered these themes on a large scale – Duisburg Nord – as well as on a small scale. Three projects of the last few years would be presented, which have or will have
no less an important effect on life in their respective urban fabric.
