The economic prosperity of the city of Rijeka in the past and in the present is directly related to the functioning of the port. Nowadays people of Rijeka face migration of young people for economic, social and societal reasons. Young people are leaving Rijeka due to stagnation in the development of the city. The latter also significantly affect changes in the city life and the city beat. In this workshop we want to check vision for the development of the relationship between the port and the city of Rijeka in the border areas between the two urban structures from the perspective of young people. Interconnected areas—or the borders between the city and the port, or the port and the surrounding landscape—are becoming a key point in implementing modern town-planning concepts. Ports fear that urban solutions will affect and restrict the main port activity. Similarly, cities fear that the expansion of the port traffic will generate more noise and negative environmental impacts in city areas.
Rijeka lacks most of arts and culture, creative industries and education centres. Issues that in this context remain open for discussion are:
- waterfront as a culture destination;
- city workrooms;
- young’ people’s entertainment places;
- interface points between the port and the city;
- port and education;
- port’s warehouses: between the decay and the redevelopment: opportunities for creative renewal.
The results of the workshop will be used in the future activities planned by the city of Rijekavwhen applying for European Capital of Culture in 2020. It is similarly expected that thevresults of the workshop will be used in projects that are acquired by Luka Rijeka to improve the integration of ports in the northern Adriatic, their infrastructure and other links.
