Sharing lessons from Paris, its suburbs – and each other!
The International Making Cities Livable (IMCL) conference series began in 1985, founded by Suzanne Lennard, a Bristol, UK architectural scholar, and Henry Lennard, a Viennese medical sociologist.
The IMCL is a unique peer-to-peer gathering of civic leaders, professionals and scholars dedicated to transitioning to a more livable, humane and ecological generation of cities, towns and suburbs. Once again, the focus of the event is on successful case studies and evidence-based research, sharing effective tools and strategies to drive real change.
This year, the focus will be on the tools and strategies to build, protect and enhance thriving public spaces, and the adjacent private spaces and uses that afford well-being, social interaction, quality of life, exercise, health, and economic opportunity, for all the residents of cities, towns and suburbs.
