Post-socialist cities carry a solid heritage of the past that leaves its signature on determining the housing policy, urban planning, public spaces management, etc. Though the past seems ubiquitous, nevertheless urban transformations are inevitable. Decades later, Belgrade, Kyiv and Tbilisi are reviving, but not without challenges. Urban activists are standing on the frontline to promote sustainable changes, but at the same time to prevent destructive policies.
Three offices of the Heinrich Boell Foundation hosted an online event on urban transformations of post-soviet cities.
Invited speakers of the discussion on the urban development experiences of Belgrade, Kyiv and Tbilisi were:
Anastasia Bobrova, NGO Cedos (Kyiv, Ukraine)
Iva Čukić, NGO Ministry of Space (Belgrade, Serbia)
Nano Zazanashvili, NGO Urban Research Center (Tbilisi, Georgia)
