Denksalon 2020: The revitalization of historic towns in Lower Silesia and Saxony

- Digital conference within the project REVIVAL! -

Due to the Corona-pandemic this year’s Denksalon will unfortunately not physically take place in Görlitz/ Zgorzelec as usual.

Alternatively, the IZS invites on October 9th 2020. The digital conference will address the research topics of the project REVIVAL! - The revitalization of historic towns in Lower Silesia and Saxony. In the project, which is funded by INTERREG Polska-Saxony 2014-2020, ten small and medium-sized towns in Southwestern Poland and Eastern Saxony intend to strengthen their architecturally valuable historic town centres with the support of three research institutions. The scientific research as well as the digital conference focus on the question how the (built) cultural heritage directly and indirectly contributes to quality of life and sustainable development in historic small and medium-sized towns in peripheral locations such as the project area. The bilingual event (German/ Polish) hence addresses both a professional public interested in research on small and medium-sized towns, (built) cultural heritage and urban quality of life science as well as scientists and stakeholders of town planning and politics in Germany and Poland.

The programme and registration form for this year’s digital conference CULTURAL HERITAGE AS A BUILDING BLOCK OF URBAN QUALITY OF LIFE are now available on the project webpage.

The IZS looks forward to the digital event and hopes to be able to invite for a standard Denksalon in Görlitz/ Zgorzelec in 2021.
