Round table – Educational Eco-Urbanism: Education for Cities

On 26 May 2022, within the 5th Annual International Symposium Education and City: The Third Mission of the University a mixed format round table Educational Eco-Urbanism: Education for Cities will be held. It will be moderated by Elena Ivanova and Ekaterina Kolesova, academic staff’s members of the Laboratory of Educational Infrastructures at the MCU’s Research Institute of Urban Studies and Global Education.

Increasing urbanization is one of the manifestations of the accelerating global evolutionary process. Despite a number of negative consequences, urbanization is seen as a key factor in the development of society. Sustainable cities and localities have also become a goal in the UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Modern urbanism explains urban processes and manages them, combining achievements in the social-humanitarian, natural and technical sciences. One of the key tasks of the modern education and enlightenment is to develop a sustainable way of life for urban residents and reduce the anthropogenic load on the environment.

The roundtable participants will discuss educational eco-urbanism, the mission and goals of sustainable development in an age of disruption and instability, as well as case studies and training programs in eco-urbanism and their relevance for young people.

The speakers will deliver reports on the following topics: 

  • “To the New Model of Urbanization” (Dmitriy Kavtaradze);
  • “Education for Cities: Modern Trends and Priorities” (Irina Ilyina);
  • “Environmental Education in the City: Retrospection Trends” (Yuriy Mazurov);
  • “Science as the Basis for Environmental Education: Argumentative Issues of the Learning Content” (Valeriy Snakin);
  • “Application of the Systemic Ecology Models for Analyzing and Forecasting the City’s Research and Educational Environment and its Components” (Sergey Spitsky);
  • “Digital Learning Environment as a Factor of Life Quality” (Olga Dorofeeva);
  • “Public Environmental Monitoring and Control for Ensuring Eco-Safety within Urbanized Environments” (Vladimir Volkov);
  • “The Ecosystem of Instructional Innovation Development by means of Scientific and Instructional Support: the Case of Krasnoyarsk” (Evgenia Velichko).
