Reflections from Participants

What is the Livable City Forum?

What makes a vital and a livable city? One thing is certain, it revolves around people, education and business. As cities compete globally to attract the best talents, the urban culture and wellbeing become increasingly important.

In the Livable City Forum you will hear true-life examples of strategies, methods and partnerships utilising design thinking for better and more sustainable urban development. But more than this, you’ll also get to experience the methods at first hand!

The Livable City Forum gives an opportunity to share experiences and learn from each other – your participation is key! Experts from the city governments, urban practitioners and academia will share their views and findings on what makes the cities livable and enjoyable for us all!
