Online, Tuesday 7th June, 11:30 - 1pm (Irish Time) / (12:30-2pm CET)
Connecting across the UNIC European University Alliance and Port University League, this second Cork Harbour Festival seminar on the Future of Port Cities considers how can we realise the benefits of personal and collective health, wellbeing and solidarity within our cities and regions.
As we move through the streets, parks, ports, waterways and public realms of our urban centres, it is through activities like sports and festivals that we find opportunity for encounters with each other. They allow us to gather, to connect, to amplify and to animate us as active members of our communities, locally and globally. Join us as we explore themes of body and movement(s), sport, physical activity and innovation and consider how, together, we can we rise to the challenge to create more healthy, inclusive and sustainable futures.
