The Liveable City

A place has a strong identity, when it is connected with its past, but at the same time embraces the future and its challenges. The most liveable cities in the world have achieved that balance by putting people first.

Because of the long Danish tradition of a people-first approach in city planning, the Royal Danish Embassy is hosting The Liveable City, a conference that in London is held for the seventh time after successful events around UK the last 3 years.

The Liveable City is a Danish-British celebration of architecture and urban planning. It addresses the question of how to find ways in which cities can increase the quality of life for everyone. The conference will feature seminars on topical issues such as sustainability, affordable housing, accessible transport, and urban health.

The seminars are presenting speakers and chairs from key Danish and British architectural practices, engineering firms, developers, councils and municipalities, and academic institutions. Alongside the seminars, an exhibition is shown that present different examples of how Danish architecture is about creating liveable spaces, where people can thrive and foster a strong identity.
