On the 12-14 of June 2024, Irene Bianchi from the Politecnico di Milano participated in the XXVI SIU (Società Italiana degli Urbanisti) Conference entitled “Novel Territorial Ecologies: Cohabiting Changing Worlds”, held in Naples.

Her presentation was entitled “Hybrid Perspectives for Climate and Territorial Resilience: An Experiment Between Research, Art, and Local Action” (Prospettive ibride per la resilienza climatica e territoriale: Un esperimento tra ricerca, arte e azione locale), illustrated some insights into the experimentation process which initiated by the PALIMPSEST project in Jerez de la Frontera. Starting from the assumption that the climate crisis demands new spaces for dialogue between ways of imagining and acting, the contribution reflects how the inclusion of creative perspectives can illuminate new directions in the face of climate-related problems, facilitating unexpected alliances and supporting innovation dynamics. Irene Bianchi presented in the session “Cantieri”, chaired by Enrico Formato and Anna Attademo. Many thanks to the discussants Cristina Bianchetti and Annalisa Metta for their feedback!
