In the framework of the Annual Forum 2024, the Interreg BSR project “Liveability” will organised a joint seminar with the VASAB Secretariat and UBC Planning Cities Commission.

Cities in the Baltic Sea Region have to manage various transition processes and are looking for solutions to these challenges. At the same time they strive to be attractive place to live and work in – in short: liveable cities. To achieve this, city administrations should rethink the way in which they approach urban planning and public service delivery, for instance by working in a more design-oriented way.

The seminar will

  • involve participants in a discussion on what makes their cities liveable right now and in the future,
  • introduce public interest design as a possible path towards liveability,
  • feature the launch of the “liveable cities” label and network, a joint endeavour of the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme project “Liveability” and the Union of Baltic Cities,
  • highlight what possible future actions the VASAB Vision 2040 foresees for cities and towns to become more liveable.

The objective is to familiarise cities from the Baltic Sea Region with the concept of public interest design and motivate them to become part of the “liveable cities” network.
