AI in Sustainable Cities
We are happy to invite you to the joint event hosted by Transforming Cities and Science for Sustainability. This event will be centered around the theme of ‘AI in Sustainable Cities’. AI technologies have the potential to transform cities into more sustainable, smarter, and efficient urban landscapes. As AI becomes embedded in urban infrastructure, how will it redefine the relationship between citizens and their environment? How can AI-driven decision-making be transparent and accountable?
Join us on Thursday, March 23 at the Grand Café of the Vening Meineszbuilding A on the Utrecht Science Park to explore and discuss the multifaceted implications of AI in sustainable cities. The event will showcase expert perspectives from various fields on this multifaceted topic.
We are happy to announce that Luke Hespanhol from the University of Sydney will join us to speak about the user-centered design of hybrid urban environments. Marco Pellegrino from Utrecht University’s AI & Sustainability Lab will present his project on multi-agent simulations of sustainable mobility solutions in cities. Nanna Verhoeff and Michiel de Lange will offer theoretical reflections on the implementation of AI in sustainable cities and the use of AI for optimizing interventions for a sustainable city.
We look forward to seeing you next week Thursday!

Science for Sustainability
Science for Sustainability (S4S) forms an inclusive and inspiring platform for interaction between researchers, lecturers, and students interested in solutions for sustainability issues. The S4S community strengthens the enormous potential of Utrecht University’s natural sciences to address societal challenges in the field of sustainability. The transition to a sustainable society is a challenge that requires both immediate and sustained research into new technologies, materials, processes, and methods.
Transforming Cities Utrecht focuses on sustainable solutions for cities. Together with societal stakeholders, the researchers of our community work to understand how cities change and how sustainability transformations can be accelerated. Our ambition is to find solutions that help cities to transform into sustainable, healthy and equal places.
