The City-zen Roadshow travels with a team of internationally recognized experts, in the field of energy planning and design to help develop a sustainable agenda for cities and their neighbourhoods. The Roadshow team work closely with people from the hosting city, whether they be city leaders, energy planners, local architects, professionals, academics, students and of course the citizens themselves. The Roadshow spends 5 days in each hosting city to deliver energy and urban design workshops in which all local stakeholders are welcome and encouraged to join and to take ownership of the final outcomes. Outcomes that will allow the cities recourses, both people and energy, to be directed effectively, by highlighting the energy challenges and potentials to be found in their neighbourhoods, and to finally present a sustainable ‘City Vision’.
The following report will describe the activities and outcomes of the City-zen ‘Sevilla’ Roadshow that took place in Sevilla, between the 20th & 24th of November 2017.

Bibliographical note


The Sevilla Roadshow would not have been possible without the commitments and organisational energy of one individual: Prof. Madelyn Marrero Melendez, highly respected member of the Escuela Tecnica Superior de Ingeniería de Edificación (Universidad de Sevilla). Madelyn and her team of
sustainability educators gave continuous support during the preparations for the Sevilla SWAT Studio and later Roadshow. The Roadshow team would like to take this opportunity to thank Madelyn and her committed colleagues at the Universidad de Sevilla. We wish them well in their continued efforts to make Sevilla a zero-energy city, and wish them every success in taking the outcomes of the City-zen ‘Sevilla’ Roadshow to the next level of realization.

The Ingeniería de Edificación would be the home of the SWAT Studio and Roadshow during our co-creative efforts to develop a Sustainable City Vision.
