City-University partners across our UNIC European University Alliance 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 chaired by Irish Times Journalist Lorna Siggins, bringing thought leaders into conversation around this ambition as part of the Cork Harbour Festival 2021 programme.
