The conference “Toward Post-Carbon Cities” - Sustainable Built Environment 2016 (SBE 2016 TORINO) was held in Turin on 18-19 February 2016.
SBE16 Turin was a part of the series of Conferences planned in different cities throughout the world in 2016 and 2017.
The objective of SBE16 Torino was to present new paradigms in the shift towards post-carbon cities, bringing together diverse experiences and perspectives, exchanged in a friendly workshop with a rigorous scientific approach.
The conference was organized under auspices of international conveners CIB, iiSBE, UNEP-SBCI and FIDIC and belongs to the Sustainable Built Environment regional conference series, leading towards the World Conference SBE17 Hong Kong.
Transition toward “post-carbon city” imposes new paradigms in the policy makers agenda.
It requires a burst in the carbon-dependency of our urban systems, which has lead to current high levels of greenhouse gases. There is the need for the establishment of new types of cities that are low-carbon as well as environmentally, socially and economically sustainable. In the current transition, new uncertainties and vulnerabilities of cities are emerging, that require an holistic evaluation approach and new integrated collaborative methods and tools with the aim at assisting urban planners, built environment stakeholders and policy makers in their efforts to plan, design and manage post-carbon cities.
