Walk21 Vienna 2015 offers a broad variety of Walkshops and Urban Laboratories on Tuesday morning before the Opening and on Friday afternoon after the Closing of the conference. These Walkshops and Urban Labs are a great opportunity to experience public spaces in Vienna, to have a different view on the urban fabric, to discuss with local experts and last but not least, to meet and mingle with other Walk21 conference participants. Have an interesting time outdoors before and after the official conference program!
The Walkshops are organised excursions around the city and guided by experts from the municipality of Vienna. The Urban Laboratories are facilitated and prepared by conference participants. The ideas and concepts for Urban Laboratories were submitted during the Call for Abstracts.
The Walkshops and Urban Labs are open to all registered Walk21 Vienna conference participants and accompanying persons. You can register for the Walkshops/Urban Labs on the bottom of this page. Each Walkshop and Urban Lab will last for about 3 hours (you will see more details on content, duration or meeting points by clicking on the Walkshop /Urban Lab title).
