Liveable Cities

On the way to a liveable city

Many people who live in conurbations and cities are increasingly demanding a more liveable environment. This does not just mean a cleaner city, with better air quality, less noise and reduced traffic. These city dwellers want services and offers in their municipality also to be available online. The time thus saved benefits family life or hobbies - and thus enhances the quality of life. In addition, it is important that cities also orientate themselves by the various needs of their citizens, companies and visitors. Cities thus become more attractive and enhance their reputation.

In this connection, municipalities should establish new ways of thinking and take into account more than previously the increasingly complex requirements of different target groups. This also includes the active exchange of ideas and opinions with the respective target groups. A first step is the user-centred analysis and evaluation of the city's own services with respect to the demands made of a liveable city. In this context, best practices from cities whose inhabitants attest an especially high quality of life are helpful. In a second step, changes can be made in order to redesign municipal services.

In our MHPDeepDive "Liveable Cities", we will present the various user groups in a city. We will explain how their needs can be identified, and what added value is created if those needs are brought into focus. We will sketch this path on the basis of cities that have already been able to successfully implement their projects.

What awaits you in our MHPDeepDive:

  • We will describe how urban spaces can be made more liveable from the users' perspective.
  • We will present an approach with which you can undertake an analysis and evaluation of your own services.
  • You will learn what added value municipalities can achieve by means of user-oriented design.
