The theme of the event is "Crisis in the City", and it means summarizing both the lessons of the pandemic and the new realities of wartime with refugees and rising energy costs. Similarly, the typical Riga floods after rains have not disappeared by themselves, the city's homeless, public transport and cooperation between various institutions are still a problem. During the crisis, additional spending is needed, but how will we make money and support business? Have we started to appreciate Riga's green areas more in remote work mode? Where else to find support and inspiration for growth in times of crisis? And what ebout 5G networks?
In accordance with the emergency situation, the event is concentrated in one day, but there will be the usual warm-up lectures and in-depth discussions, which will be followed by a hackathon of ideas from professionals in various fields.
For the first time in history, the main architects, planners and designers of the three Baltic capitals - Riga, Tallinn and Vilnius - will take the stage together. In an interconnected world, it's much easier to compare the keys to success and focus on what's important.
And the main thing - in a crisis, we do not complain about what has been missed, but evaluate whether the city of Riga meets the requirements of the crisis and the judgment, what should be done to improve the situation.
