Roundtable: The Future of Port Cities

Join us for an international roundtable discussion on the Future of Port Cities, chaired by Irish Times Journalist Lorna Siggins.

The Future of Port Cities: Post-Pandemic Recovery, Resilience & Renaissance

As a collective, across our UNIC European Alliance of City-University partnerships, we believe ports and port cities have a particularly unique role to play in helping us to rethink and redesign the future of our urban centers - in a citizen centered, diverse and ecological manner.

Join us for a roundtable discussion on June 10th (14:00 Cork / 15:00 CET) chaired by Irish Times Journalist Lorna Siggins, that will bring thought leaders into conversation around this ambition.

This is a public UNIC CityLabs event, held online as part of the Cork Harbour Festival programme and led by the Civic & Community Engagement office, University College Cork.

Free for all to attend, the event will open with a cultural performance from UCC student and Harpist Síofra Thornton.

Panelists:

  • Associate Professor Amanda Brandellero, Erasmus University Rotterdam School of History, Culture and Communication and member of the 'Port City Futures' group in the Netherlands.
  • Feargal Reidy Director of Strategic and Economic Development, Cork City Council
  • Conor Mowlds, Chief Commercial Officer, Port of Cork Company
  • Lar Joye, Port Heritage Director, Dublin Port Company

We welcome public audiences, as well as policy makers and academics from across the European Cities and Universities involved in UNIC and colleagues from the Port City Universities League representing 14 countries internationally.

The event will be hosted on Zoom. Registered participants will receive a link to join the live event via in advance of the event.
