When do people feel at home in a city, when do they call it ‘our city?’  What are the suitable strategies for fostering inclusion? There are many ways to look at this subject – from gentrification to shrinking cities, from safe cities for all to healthy sustainable and resilient cities.

We invite you to read all about strategies, projects, and proposed solutions towards this aim in our publication ‘Our City? Countering Exclusion in Public Space’ in the FULL PDF released to the public! Please access the complete version as a downloadable pdf to the right, or read about thematically specific stories from the Our City? book in the stories section of our website.
