Liveable cities

Industrialization and advancing technology are producing more food, energy and consumer goods than ever before. The gains are immense: rising living standards and millions lifted out of extreme poverty. But there’s a price to pay, as economic growth fuels over-consumption, waste and pollution. The environment suffers – and so do human health and wellbeing. One death in every eight is caused by air pollution.

The challenge is to build liveable, sustainable cities that contribute to quality of life and the long-term protection of the environment, and exist in harmony with the rural communities that provide our food.

The cities of tomorrow must be people-centred and resilient, with liveable built and natural environments, rural-urban linkages, and quality public spaces. Francesco Bandarin, UNESCO Assistant Director-General for Culture
