We all want to create liveable cities in which people thrive and prosper, but how to make that ideal come true? The Liveable City’s opening seminar focuses on the political process of moving from vision to action, bringing in experiences from recent years where Danish cities as well as cities around the world have undergone a remarkable transformation. Here, examples of successful project proposals to encourage economic development and investment to an area will be presented, including how to attract landmark projects and early adopters.
