Most people currently reside in urban areas and cities. By 2045, the world's urban population will increase by 1.5. Cities are hubs of knowledge exchange and understanding, people migrate to cities from rural areas, in search for more opportunities and higher pace, leading to extreme urban intensification and a higher population density, posing a threat to sustainability’s levels and the quality of life in cities.

The most notable and disastrous cases of urban intensification bring forth critical problems in their development, marching on towards financial gain, heedless of environmental impact, leading to the detriment of the city’s inhabitants. Oftentimes, developing cities suffering from heavy and unstable urbanization cater to the affluent members of society, prioritizing consumption, and real estate, which stands to create a socio-economic divide in the city, and is simply not sustainable. Looking further past economics, heavy urbanization presents a myriad of problems, namely automobile reliance, unreliable food, energy, and water availability, and a severe lack of biodiversity to name a few. 

The 8th International Conference on Green Urbanism- (GU), explores urbanism problems with experts in the field through this remarkable gathering taking in mind the dedicated and advancing sustainable practices in urban environments. The conference will take place at the one of Italy's oldest and most esteemed academic institutions; the prestigious University of Rome Tor Vergata from October 07th to 09th, 2024.

The conference aims to explore the intersection of green urbanism and the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As our cities face numerous challenges in the 21st century, it is imperative that we address contemporary issues related to sustainability and the urgent need to transition towards greener solutions. GU conference will delve into a wide range of topics, including sustainable architecture and urban planning, renewable energy systems, waste management, transportation, biodiversity conservation, and the promotion of green spaces within urban landscapes. By examining these crucial aspects of urban development, we intend to foster a comprehensive understanding of the challenges and opportunities associated with building sustainable and livable cities.

The 8th GU conference will serve as a platform for leading researchers, policymakers, industry professionals, and passionate advocates to share their knowledge, experiences, and innovative ideas. Through engaging presentations, panel discussions, and collaborative workshops, participants will have the opportunity to explore best practices, exchange insights, and develop new strategies to address the complex issues facing our urban environments.

Moreover, the University of Rome Tor Vergata provides an ideal setting for this conference. With its rich history and commitment to academic excellence, the university exemplifies the spirit of innovation and collaboration necessary to tackle the challenges of sustainable urban development, its beautiful campus, located in the vibrant city of Rome, will inspire participants to engage in meaningful conversations and forge lasting connections with like-minded individuals from around the world.

Additionally, all proceedings will be published in one of the many Scopus indexed book series, which is a collaboration between the renowned publisher Springer Nature & IEREK, and other publishing opportunities that guarantee the visibility and access to the valuable contributions shared during the event.

Visit University of Rome Tor Vergata

Your Trip To Rome, Italy

Rome stands as one of the finest and oldest cities in the world. The history of Rome spans over 2500 years and it has been a centre of power, politics, culture and development since its inception. Creation of the city is steeped in legend and mythology and there are various different accounts of how this majestic place was built. Various Roman emperors and Casers have ruled mighty Rome and this is the place where the colossal Roman Empire grew from.

The following are some suggestions of places to visit while you are in Rome, Italy.

  1. Colosseum


This mighty structure is one of the most renowned and iconic landmarks in the world and a trip to Rome would not be complete without visiting the Colosseum.

Also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, the Colosseum was constructed between 70-80 AD and at its peak was estimated to hold 80,000 spectators.

  1. St Peter’s Square


Rome holds a small country within a country – The Vatican.

This independent state is one of the most important religious sites in the world and St. Peter’s Square is an iconic place where many significant events have taken place.

Located at the front of the Vatican state, the square is actually circular and is framed by two huge sets of colonnades – Standing on these columns are beautiful statues of various religious figures and previous popes.

  1. The Pantheon


The mighty Pantheon stands as one of the best preserved ancient Roman buildings in the world and is one of Rome’s most famous attractions.

Constructed in 118 AD by emperor Hadrian, the building that stands today was actually built on the site where an earlier temple stood that was commissioned by Agrippa.

  1. Trevi Fountain


There are not many other fountains in the world as lavishly decorated and sculptured as the Trevi fountain.

Constructed in 1762 by Nicola Salvi, the fountain pays tribute to the Roman God Oceanus who can be seen riding his chariot pulled by Tritons and taming several Hippocamps.

The detail of the sculptures is simply wonderful and the whole facade and fountain are a true work of art.

  1. Sistine Chapel


Part of the Vatican museum complex, the Sistine Chapel is one of the most renowned religious chapels in the world and has a stunning amount of detail and iconography.

Situated in the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican City, the Sistine Chapel was extensively restored in the 1400’s and the place where the papal enclave takes place – It is here that a new pope is selected.

The Sistine Chapel is particularly famous for its extensive and detailed decorations including the Last Judgement fresco by Michelangelo and the ceiling artwork.

  • After the conference, the authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their research, 8 – 12+ pages in length, (optional) of their short papers for publishing in an edited volume to be published by Springer Nature.
  • Publishing your short paper (i.e., extended abstract) in the conference proceedings does not prevent the submission of the full version for publishing consideration after the conference if the similarity percentages (SR%) in Step 3 are taken into account.
