Up Close and Liveable

A global review on social agendas for cities and metropoles

Your environment, where you are born, where you attend school, where you build a network, has a great impact on your life expectancy. So if WE make the city, how do we provide equal access to housing, education and health services? How do we handle digital rights and deal with the consequences of growing tourism? And how to do this in a more sustainable and inclusive way? Professionals from cities like Berlin, Boston, Copenhagen, Milan, New York, Paris, Stockholm, Singapore and Tokyo come together to share strategies and solutions on these topics.

Keynote: OluTimehin Adegbeye “Who belongs in the city” (Lagos/Nigeria)
