The Urbanism Hours are virtual lunch time events that explore a given theme through two presentations and a Q&A.

For April's Urbanism Hour, we will be joined by Asier Abaunza Robles from Ayuntamiento Bilbao, and Noema's Lia Ghilardi. Further speaker and event details will be published nearer the event.
