The JPI Urban Europe AGORA Workshop "Dilemmas of Public Space"
CRLDS Albania participated in the JPI Urban Europe AGORA Workshop "Dilemmas of Public Space" held in Riga from November 20 to 22, 2019.
On November 19th, we started AGORA's activities in Riga with a kindly Tour / WALKshop around the city of Riga, with a particular focus on public space projects implemented in the city of Riga and in the peri-urban areas, organized by local hosts.
On the second day of the event, 20 November, Mrs. Luiza Hoxhaj presented the paper "Management of Cities and Public Spaces, the Case of Albania".
The Latvian Ministry of Education and Science and the Latvian State Education Development Agency, the hosts of activity, invited the participants of Agoras for a joint dinner on November 20th.
A version of the workshop booklet with all the abstracts of our contributions was printed for all participants: Over 50 pages to expose, draw links and reflect on different perspectives was a good orientation for our disscussions.
We had the chance to meet, connect and exchange with people coming with various ideas and perspectives on the topic from all over the place: From Montreal, Canada via New York City to Sao Paulo, Brazil; from Braga/Portugal via Amsterdam and Wroclaw/Poland to Ventspils/Latvia and from London via Grenoble/France and Tirana/Albania to Bucharest/Romania.... and many other destinations in between those places.
