Through critical and objective view on enduring factors of cities that directly impact and reshape individuals and even personality traits, it is proposed to find out explanations to questions such as “what do cities teach and show us?”, “in what ways cities shape and train us?”, and most importantly “how people can 'use' cities to accomplish things possessing knowledge to abovementioned questions”. This conference is designed to consolidate the efforts of scientists and experts to ultimately comprehend existing questions with scientifically based keys, directed at uncovering the logic and tactics of implementing the "HOW TO MAKE THIS CIVILIZATION A FLOURISHING ONE".
Scope of the conference
It is in the midst of the city that one writes the most inspiring pages about the country.
You take delight not in a city's seven or seventy wonders, but in the answer it gives to a question of yours.
All cities are mad: but the madness is gallant. All cities are beautiful, but the beauty is grim.
First we shape the cities and then they shape us
Cities make who we are.
Cities have the capability of providing something for everybody, only because, and only when, they are created by everybody.
