ETIC/RSET/SPSD Joint Symposium 2015, Kanazawa

Sustainable Residential Areas


As cities strive to be adaptable to population change, climate change and the pressures of modernisation and globalisation, creating sustainable residential areas is key to providing liveable environments for inhabitants.  Sustainable residential areas provide housing for happy and healthy residents, prosperous social and cultural environments, and ensure a productive and motivated workforce for local economies.  In addition, as inhabitants become more diverse and hold their planners accountable for their living environments, their participation in planning is an important topic.  This year’s workshop will focus on the aspects of urban planning that create sustainable living areas for city residents over the long term, and also that encourage and accommodate the participation of residents in the urban planning of their cities.
