In 2022 the first edition of the UPV/EHU Summer Course on Naturalization of the Urban and Industrial Environment that we directed from Naider materialized. An enriching experience that came to fruition with expert lectures from professionals who address urban transformation from various fields, and with the active participation of attendees that included, among others, profiles of architecture, environmental sciences, engineering, economics, and public service.

After the success of the first edition, the Summer Courses Foundation of the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) has confirmed for July 20 and 21 the celebration of the course Transformation, Regeneration and Naturalization of the Urban and Industrial Environment, which will again be directed by Naider, completing and expanding what was dealt with in the previous edition with new approaches and tools to reconceptualize urban environments and meet the different social, environmental and economic demands. On this occasion, the course will take place in Donostia, at the Miramar Palace.

The preliminary program includes the following presentations:

DAY 1 (Thursday, July 20):

  • Urban regeneration and naturalization tools in a metropolitan area of international reference.
  • Sustainable, Circular and Regenerative Urban Planning Criteria and the role of Nature Based Solutions.
  • Activation of Energy Communities in Industrial Estates 4.0
