About Urban Talks

At Urban Talks, we bring smart and sustainable solutions for cities.

We educate. We connect. We inspire.

Urban Talks were created by UrbanizeHub out of a simple need of connecting innovators, leaders, changemakers and companies who share the same values and dream of a better world. Through their Urban Talks, they inspire us to get involved in projects that shape the future of our cities.

Architecture Challenge for Bega

The Bega Canal is the main ecological corridor that runs through Timisoara, generating a series of interconnected green spaces. It has supported the city in all its phases, initially through its military role, later economically and now socio-culturally.

However, the Bega River still has a limited presence in the life of people living in Timisoara. Although attempts have been made to promote it and it has been at the center of every urban planning document since 2000, the river hasn’t been taken to its full potential. Its only active banks are those located in the central area, close to restaurants.

So we raise a challenge: let’s find solutions for the unused banks of the Bega Canal! We’ll work in multidisciplinary teams to understand the context and identify the main issues we can solve, and together we’ll develop landscaping solutions.
