LXNIGHTS at the “Cities Under Pressure” Seminar

Yesterday we had the opportunity to participate in the seminar “Cities Under Pressure“, organised by Build the City at the British Council headquarters in Lisbon. We introduced LXNIGHTS, and talked briefly about the challenges that the development of a lively urban nightlife in overturistified urban places pose for local residentes and the municipality, and argued that in-depth, longterm fieldwork research is necessary to inform policy making decisions. In that sense, we launched a proposal for the creation of a Nightlife Lisbon Commission that would help to tackle the problems associated to the urban night.
