Conferences

The principles of the International Making Cities Livable movement, initiated in 1985 to make our cities and communities more livable, have become part of a national US agenda, and are being applied by many cities in Europe and other parts of the world.

At these conferences world leaders, city officials, practitioners and scholars in architecture, urban design, planning, social sciences, health policy, law and urban affairs gather to exchange experiences and ideas to improve city livability.

We'd love to see you at the next conference!
