Conference: Climate Care Academy

Slovak University of Technology, Bratislava
The three-day summer academy programme of the Year of Climate Care project will deal with the phenomenon of emergency architecture (temporary architecture for crisis management), focusing on how to deal with the sudden loss of housing. The issue of climate migration is not yet acute in Slovakia, but we have experience with people fleeing the war in Ukraine. The program is aimed at students and professionals from the fields of architecture, urban development, social welfare, and activism.

Keywords: temporary architecture, (climate) refugees, rapid action, rebuilding, ideas gathering, access to decent, adequate, affordable, and healthy housing for all

Goals

To thematize the topic of migration and the right to housing and bring together professionals who deal with these topics on the daily basis

To discuss inspirative case studies from the field of emergency architecture and thematize the role of emergency architecture in today's world

To create opportunities for these professionals to spend together valuable time and exchange their experiences, to motivate them

To provide a platform where these professionals can meet, formulate their needs and create their network

To provide participants with information about New European Bauhaus and its initiative for Ukraine

 

Keys to our discussion

(Climate) refugees / migration

The war in Ukraine brought us an important topic that is contextually connected to the humanitarian disaster that certain areas of the world are already experiencing, but in a different way as a result of the climate crisis. Climate refugees, people who are already forced to leave their homes, are already a reality today.

 

Right to housing

We are following up on Amnesty Slovakia's current campaign – how authorities and municipalities try to comply with human rights obligations in the framework of ensuring and protecting the right to housing of our population. 

 

Emergency architecture

Temporary housing is crucial for the survival of people threatened by a disaster of any nature. It is often solved in large spaces, which are accessible immediately but do not provide any privacy and intimacy. Refuges and temporary dwellings are becoming a topic for many sectors and an opportunity for new innovative ideas.

 

The project is organized under the auspices of the President of the Slovak Republic, Zuzana Čaputová.
