There are no miracle recipes, no manuals to be followed meticulously, and everyone recognizes that the top-down approach has failed. Public authorities more often than not fail or struggle to find solutions to these challenges. At the same time, a global movement of active citizenship is researching, experimenting and testing new behaviors, new activities and new services for their communities.
Design plays a crucial role in this new game.
How do you involve the greatest number of citizens and public authorities in the process of enhancing your neighborhood in a long-term process?
How can we facilitate the emergence of new forms of civic leadership that serve the Community?
What are the tools that can facilitate experiments to enhance under-utilized spaces or improve the quality of public spaces?
The second edition of Countless Cities will address these challenges through three new themes: Housing Diversity, Good Business, and Parkifying the Future.
Explores various types of individual and collective living for people with different means and in different stages of their lives.
Researches jobs and trades, especially regarding manual labor, that are able to fuel passion, territoriality and durability. Looks in particular at the social entrepreneurship commitment in finding innovative solutions that respond to social, environmental, economic and cultural challenges.
PARKIFYING THE FUTURE
Investigates new strategies to implement an education to the vegetal world, by re-constructing a new relationship between People and Plants and promoting the depaving of portions of the city to improve the quality of life of citizens.
