The Inclusive City: shaping places for everyone (hosted by The Royal Danish Embassy and Design Manchester)

How do we get better at creating cities for everyone? Come and join the debate at the Liveable City conference’s opening seminar.

We all want to create liveable cities in which people thrive, prosper and feel included, but how to make that ideal come true? The Liveable City’s opening seminar focuses on the political process of moving from vision to action, bringing in experiences from recent years where Danish cities as well as cities around the world have undergone a remarkable transformation. Here, examples of successful project proposals to encourage economic development and investment to an area will be presented, including how to attract landmark projects and early adopters.

This event is part of the Liveable City conference, which is jointly organised by the Royal Danish Embassy and Design Manchester with the support of Manchester City Council, Manchester Society of Architects, Manchester School of Architecture and the Design Council.
