PALERMO – UN HABITAT
URBAN THINKERS CAMPUS 2019
IN Residence is proud to present the thirteenth edition of its thematic educational and training program. “Proximity Factor” will take place in the magnificent setting of the city of Palermo as an activity included in the official calendar of the prestigious event “Palermo Urban Thinkers Campus 2019” entitled “Human Flows”. The “Urban Thinkers Campus” model is an initiative of UN-Habitat, the United Nations agency that has the task of fostering socially and environmentally sustainable urbanization, as well as guaranteeing every human being the right to live with dignity. With reference to the theory of proxemics – a discipline dedicated to the study of the use that individuals make of social and personal space – the workshop questions the different modes of action, the processes, the devices or the artefacts useful to encourage the emergence of relationships of positive proximity. By observing the increase and intensification of “human flows” and resorting the tool of design, which mutations in the dynamics of relationship between individuals can we propose, influence or facilitate?
