(R)evolution of Industrial Cities - Memory or Challenge of the Future?

We invite you to the presentation entitled (R)evolution of Industrial Cities – Memory or Challenge of the Future? that will take place during 3rd Industry Forum in Karpacz.

The phenomenon of industrial (r)evolution at the end of 18th century has changed the economic and social image of the world. The era was marked with prosperity and development of workers’ rights. Two centuries later, a bloom of modern technology led to the decline of an ”old industry”. States have to find solutions for huge unemployment and abandoned (ex)industrial areas. Which are the solutions that should have been addressed? What kind of role can local/regional/national authorities play?

The subject will be presented by Lucija Štaut and Barbara Avsenak, technical assistants in the Regional Development Agency Zasavje (Slovenia).
