The conference “Humboldt-Kolleg, A City for Living” addresses city development – a topic, which unites all of us, at least as the people living in cities and thus interested in their future. National and international experts were invited to the interactive sessions, where a vivid discussion will allow us to form a shared vision on how cities could evolve to meet the global challenges of the nowadays.
Brazilian architect Carolina Nunes is one of the speakers selected for the event, with her online talk about Rivers and Cities. Samara is a relatively old city for Russian standards, found in the 16th century. It is located on the river Volga, one of the Russian symbols. The river has been actively used during the industrialization period, and that opens unending discussion on its future. The city has a population of slightly over a million of people, diverse hi-tech industry, and faces typical problems of a large non-capital city in the era of globalization and informatization.
The International Conference is dedicated to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Alexander von Humboldt, the famous researcher and humanist. The conference is organized by the Russian alumni of the German Chancellor Fellowship in partnership with the Samara State Technical University and Samara National Research University, supported by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation.
