DLD var boðið til Sankti Pétursborgar í Rússlandi til að halda erindi á ráðstefnunni Waterfront.
Umfjöllunarefni ráðstefnunnar var vistvænni borgir, með fókus á lifandi borgarrými.
Erindi Dagnýar fjallaði um áhersluna á breyttar ferðavenjur og tækifæri sem skapast í borgarumhverfinu, með því að draga úr rýmisþörf bílsins.
Dæmi þessu til stuðnings kynnti Dagný vinningstillögur um skipulag Kársness í Kópavogi og Hlemmtorg í Reykjavík.
