New generations – specifically the millennials – and new actors are starring process of urban transformation all around the world. This track, organized in collaboration with Urbego (International Young Planning Professionals Platform), will put together researchers and practitioners to discuss new trends on urban innovation focusing, mainly, in three interrelated topics: spaces (research and practices on bottom-up projects, placemaking,
do-it-yourself urbanism and third places), participation (projects and papers that provide insights about community engagement, economic, social and institutional participation,
and youth engagement) and big data (projects and papers that assess critically the concept of smart city or propose solutions to use big data at human scale for social and urban innovation).
