A Citizen-Centric Future City
As we approach the second quarter of the 21st century there's a growing tension between the role of cities as centres of finance and capital, and vibrant places for people to live and flourish. How can a city remain accessible to the people keeping it alive, and move from looking at people as merely consumers to true citizens? Culture, mobility, housing, accessibility, affordability, mobility and education are just a few of the puzzle pieces needed to create an urban community. This panel invites an architect, a mobility expert and a post-purpose preacher to discuss the sustainable future of transformative urban design for people, not cars, creating space for more free mobility and engagement, and more personal human(e) connection to the urban landscape, greater freedom and greater health.
