How will we build and live in the future? This question will be addressed in a public lecture by Hannes Taubenböck’s Chair of Global Urbanisation and Remote Sensing on 23 October at the University of Würzburg.

Rising rents, housing shortages and ambitious sustainability goals - which visions there are for the future of housing in Germany is one of the most controversial questions of our time. The Chair of Global Urbanisation and Remote Sensing offers an exciting scientific analysis of this at a public lecture on 23 October 2023 at 8 p.m. in Lecture Hall 166 in the main building of the Julius Maximilians University (JMU) at Sanderring 2. Using satellite and geodata as examples, Chair holder Prof. Hannes Taubenböck shows current housing trends in Germany and discusses together with the audience how we want to build and live in the future.

Bringing together different interests in the housing of the future

"How and where we live has an impact on our identity, our everyday life and even our health," says Hannes Taubenböck. "That’s why, and because it really does affect everyone, there are so many different and often conflicting interests in this topic. On 23 October, we want to look into these issues together: How can our society bring all these perspectives together and think further in a democratic process?"

Specifically, the event will focus on research results from the cooperation between the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the Earth Observation Research Cluster of JMU. The lecture will last about an hour, after which the audience will have the opportunity to discuss the topic and ask questions. Admission costs three euros for adults and two euros for students. The lecture is free of charge for members of the Würzburg Geographical Society. Registration is not requested.

Chair for Global Urbanisation and Remote Sensing

The Chair of Global Urbanisation and Remote Sensing is a cooperation chair with the German Aerospace Center (DLR) based on the Jülich model. This constellation enables synergistic research between the university and the large-scale research centre. The head of the chair, Professor Hannes Taubenböck, is also head of the "Geo Risks and Civil Security" department at the German Remote Sensing Data Center (DFD) of the DLR.
