How can sustainable lifestyles be promoted and visions of future urban life be visualized in today’s cities? How can breakthrough experiences to change citizens’ and decision-makers’ mind-sets be achieved? Together with The Urban Idea and applying its CityScene methodology of ‘showing the future today’ through a mise-en-scène of future urban life for an entire month, ICLEI plans to support cities organizing this kind of ambitious, novel projects with involvement of citizens, stakeholders and international partners. The series of EcoMobility World Festivals in Suwon and Johannesburg as well as the projected Green Living project will be showcased in this session, which is designed to attract courageous urban leaders who are interested in organizing a CityScene project in their city, and will be led by the Creative Director of The Urban Idea and former ICLEI Secretary General.
Participants will develop their understanding of:
