EUROCITIES, with the support of the European Parliament's Urban Intergroup, is organising a new session of the series of events 'Imagine the urban future'.
The speakers of the event will be:
- Jan Olbrycht, MEP, president of the European Parliament Urban Intergroup
- Charles Landry, writer
- Chris Murray, director Core Cities UK
Charles Landry is a reference in the field of creativity applied to urban spaces. He invented the concept of ‘creative cities’ in the late ‘80, arguing that cities can create the right conditions for people to act with imagination and innovation to overcome changes and disruptions.
Chris Murray is director of Core Cities UK, he is an expert on urban issues. He is a visiting Professor of Practice at Newcastle University, an Honorary Fellow of the Heseltine Institute at Liverpool University, and sits on the Advisory Board of the Prime Ministers’ Regeneration Investment Organisation.
This event will be the occasion for Charles Landry and Chris Murray to explore the concept of how various psychological disciplines can be used in urban spaces, how to create a more psychologically mature city and how to analyse an urban psyche. This innovative concept is also presented in their book ‘Psychology and the city’.
MEP Jan Olbrycht will open the debate bringing his perspective about future urban challenges.
The event, hosted by the Concil of European Municipalities and Regions - square de Meeus 1, will take place on Wednesday 25 April 17.30-19.00
Registrations are open until Monday 23 April: https://bit.ly/2ph5J7X
