The city planner and architect Aglaée Degros refers in her keynote speech - as we thought to the ongoing crisis, which has made us aware that our cities are potentially fragile "The Sustainable City The Fragile City" . According to Degros, we have to regulate the density in the cities in order to activate the liveliness and the environment. "If we don't want to go back a century and if we want to fight climate change, we shouldn't question the quantity of space, but rather the quality," says Degros. According to her one must have a fair division of public space and new onesThink about forms of living such as co-housing . "For us, the current crisis is an opportunity to combine territorial justice with the environment. If we do that, in my opinion we will have everything in hand to turn a fragile city into an ecologically and humanely vital city - a living city ".
