Three years. That is the time left to limit warming to around 1.5°C. Just three years to significantly reshape our use of space and natural resources, modes of production, and associated practices.

The HRC Day will question methodsurban challenges, and research agendas throughout the day and identify priorities, opportunities, and possible answers for Urbanization in Transition. The goal is to debate the HRC research fields, and more broadly the role and the possible impact of research, through designteaching, and mediation, in the transformation of territorial logics, urban rhythms, landscape qualities, environmental services or architectural culture.

Within the program, a promising roundtable will gather international research centers focusing on the urban to debate their role, especially in the current context of simultaneous crises. As part of these challenges, the climate emergency immediately requires joint efforts and great imagination
