EUNIC Cluster Warsaw strives to build bridges between culture, society, economy, and technology in cooperation with local partners. With the project IF – SOCIAL DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABLE CITIES – Making Cities and Human Settlements Inclusive, Safe, Resilient and Sustainable, EUNIC Warsaw aims at highlighting the involvement of culture and social design in the societal debate on sustainable cities. EUNIC Warsaw is confident that connecting different perspectives will result in something new and creative. It is in this ratio that the project IF – SOCIAL DESIGN FOR SUSTAINABLE CITIES has been organized in order to contribute to a framework for continuing interdisciplinary discussions including creative minds using arts as a tool, helping to pave the way for sustainable urban growth.
