The liveable and sustainable regions and cities of tomorrow are cities that are compact and attractive, inclusive and connected, liveable and healthy, vital and competitive. Delivering sustainable regions and cities is not just a question of technology. It also requires taking a fresh look at sustainable regional development, city values and communication with its inhabitants and its businesses.
