Public Events

 

The Urban Futures Centre hosts a wide variety of public events, including a monthly seminar series on a wide range of topics relevant to urban studies. The number of guests we have had for these presentations range from a minimum of 15 to a maximum of 70. Participants in the seminars include government officials, NGO representatives, academics and students from both DUT and UKZN (from a variety of disciplines). The presenters too are varied, some of whom are urban design practitioners, urban scholars; architects; philosophers; city activists; and city officials. The seminar series is very robust and has created a real sense of inter-disciplinary engagement across the wide variety of disciplines at DUT. These seminars have also taken the form of public debates on issues of critical public interest including street-level drug use, urban design, migration, port cities and social cohesion.
