Bringing (R)Evolution to the streets: Claiming our cities for people
Cities can be places where good things happen, but they can also be places of anxiety and isolation, reinforcing feelings of marginalisation. Loneliness is now recognised as a silent killer as deadly as smoking or obesity.
But to meet the urgent challenges of our times, including social inequity, new priorities and ways of doing things are emerging and Scotland is leading the way, with Aberdeen’s ambitions to be Scotland’s first Child Friendly City and Glasgow the UK’s first ‘feminist city’.
Every positive encounter gives us some immunity against isolation, even polite daily encounters. With health as contagious as disease, how do we make our civic spaces healthier, happier, safer places that better serve women, children, teenagers, LGBTQ+, and elderly people? And how can communities, artists, designers, planners, and politicians reclaim, reimagine, and restore through the lens of wellbeing.
Joins us as we raise our sails to catch the winds of change and to discuss what greater equality means for our streets and spaces. For all the people, all the time.
