22 - 28 October 2021
Lublin is a city of young and active people with its 75,000-strong student community, including over 6500 foreign students and 9 universities. Mobility in the City of Lublin is an extremely complex phenomenon requiring an approach based on integrated solutions that combine competence in the field of technology, strategic design, but also the social aspect. The input of the city of Lublin for the Citython edition in Lublin will be to define the challenge, to support TUM with finding jury members and speakers, to organize the external services, and to develop a follow-up plan for working with the winners of Citython Lublin 2021.
During the Citython edition the City of Lublin will collaborate with the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC). Every year, more than 6,000 bachelor’s and master’s students and more than 500 doctoral students graduate. UPC fits naturally in the Knowledge Triangle to deliver Higher Education, Research & Technology. Contact with industry has been integrated into their activities and entrepreneurship is supported by different programs that have in mind students, young graduates and faculty members.
Green Connection is a concept of combining Lublin's green areas into a coherent recreational and natural system. Lublin has significant potential thanks to the unique terrain - river valleys, dry valleys and ravines permeating the urban buildings, parks, squares and the greenery of the estate. We have an opportunity to provide a more fulfilling urban experience and to design for health, equity, and accessibility. The answer to this demand may be the connection of green areas in Lublin into the Green Connection.
Green Ring Road in the City
„Green Ring Road” is a road or a series of connected roads connecting a city, districts/neighbourhoods. The purpose of a Green Ring Road is to assist in reducing traffic by offering an alternate route and the way of travel around the city, an alternative route for pedestrians, cyclists and alternative means of movement.
Green Ring Road (network) will be used for walks and sports and commuting between the districts, should be connected to existing infrastructure and the approach to the city as an ecosystem.
From Door to Door
Transport interchange points (multimodal transport hub) has a direct impact on the development of a sustainable transport network and meeting the needs of residents with a more comfortable way of travel and reducing the time "from door to door".
