What will cities and rural areas look like, when our grandchildren are born?
"Smart" and "green" technologies in building and construction and in the development of territories of the future.
How can the youth of today participate in shaping the image of future territories – their homes?
These and related issues will be discussed within the platform “Change your city to live 150 years” (Thematic area: "Designing the future: architecture and design") at the World Festival of Youth and Students in Sochi on October 17, 2017 from 3 to 5 p.m.
In the framework of the panel discussion we will study expert views and successful/implemented youth projects that have influenced the development of territories. We’ll also address the issues concerning the principles of green building and construction and smart technologies for cities and villages.
It is obvious that to make the human capital of the village, city and region grow and not decrease, a particular area must have an organized space that can contribute to the comprehensive development of children and young people, possess disabled and elderly assistive technologies and be comfortable for combining everyday working and recreational activities of the working population. Therefore, it is necessary to talk about rethinking the territory’s space and infrastructure, to discuss sustainable approaches to urban policy and provision of urban amenities, and to address the issues of strengthening the role of civil institutions in decision-making at the local level, as well as the responsibilities of the authorities and business-structures in these processes.
Science has shaped a whole industry — environmental psychology (the psychology of the environment) that studies the psychological aspects of human-environment interaction, including the analysis of patterns of psychological consequences of environmental problems (mental health disorders, rise in crime, demographic shifts and so on).
For example, the world and Russian practices show that antisocial behaviour in the youth environment is directly connected with the living environment (grayness of residential areas, lack of recreational areas and etc.), as well as with the underdeveloped social infrastructure.
We are waiting for You to share Your ideas and Practices! October 17, 2017 Sochi
