The conference's overarching theme will be to develop an environmental
perspective on the making of the European city over the last two
centuries.The aim is to focus, through a historical approach, on the city conceived as an environmental system and on the environmental implications of the technical and social ways of 'creating' the urban system. The conference will investigate different local histories and will compare them on the European level.
