Bocconi University is glad to announce and invite you to attend the COP28 event "The territorialization of the Agenda 2030 and urban low carbon transition" aimed at spotlighting strategies and policies that cities can implement to achieve carbon neutrality and enhance local resilience.
Cities attract each year thousands of off-site students thanks to the high quality of university programs, the concentration of urban services and the overall job opportunities. However, cities are now facing a student housing emergency, due to the gap between accommodation demand and house availability, quality and accessibility. On November 29th, Bocconi University and MUSA project organise a workshop focusing on analysing the current situation of student accommodation in Italy and in Milan.
On November 7th, Professor Edoardo Croci, SUR Lab Director, discussed at the Urbanpromo workshop the role of ESG criteria in supporting urban regeneration projects. Find here the link to re-watch the discussion and learn more about the relationship between the ESG approach and urban transformation.

La prima stagione del podcast “Sustainability and the city", realizzato nell’ambito del progetto MUSA – Multilayered Urban Sustainability Action, è ora online. Nell'episodio E.3 IL VALORE DELLA SOSTENIBILITA', Professor Croci, SUR Lab Director, discute del ruolo e della rilevanza delle discipline economiche nell'analisi degli impatti ecologici e sociali delle politiche pubbliche, delle attività e dei progetti con particolare attenzione alla scala urbana
Professor Croci, SUR Lab director, talks about the role of urban regeneration process in leading sustainable development at the urban scale, considering its effects on reducing soil consumption, increasing energy efficiency, enhancing quality of life, promoting a circular economy approach and sustainable mobility. The Italian Recovery and Resilience Plan strongly recognizes the relevance of urban regeneration process through different strategic actions and supporting financial mechanisms.
Bocconi’s SUR Lab has chosen the management of urban green areas as its research focus for this year. The decision comes at a crucial moment in which several cities, including Milan, have experienced serious weather-related events that urge them to innovate their approaches and models for the management of urban parks, whether public or private, to enhance ecosystem services, and build resilience.
How can urban regeneration projects increase their performance in terms of sustainability? In this podcast, Professor Croci, SUR Lab Director, talks about the ESG framework's role in guiding sustainable urban regeneration and the results of the last SUR Lab research focusing on this topic.
Through circular economy practices, it is possible to boost innovation, growth and firm competitiveness on the path towards sustainability thanks to increased efficiency in the use of resources, the decreased use of raw materials and the minimization of waste along the supply chains, the reduction of carbon emissions across the entire life cycle of products. Professor Croci, SUR Lab Director, presents the last insights regarding the benefits generated by applying the circular economy approach in different sectors, and the evolution of policy frameworks in the EU and Italy.
