The Civic City In A Nomadic World – EP. 09
EP.09 – THE CIVIC CITY IN A NOMADIC WORLD: Charles Landry is an international authority on the use of imagination and creativity in urban change. He created the concept of the Creative City in the late 1980s to help people and cities think, plan and act with imagination. Charles helps cities identify and make the most of their potential opening up the conversation about more desirable futures. During our session, Charles talks about some of the key messages of his latest project, The Civic City in a Nomadic World aim to start the conversation about the promise of a different urban civilization. According to Charles, everything emerging is one way or another, is connected to mobility and movement. “More people for more reason than before, are criss-crossing the globe, from one city to the next in search of better work or life.” Some of Charles’ research and initiatives include the Urban Psyche Test and the Creative City Index in collaboration with the City of Bilbao.
