About The Event
We are delighted to announce that the next IMCL conference will take place in the remarkable livability laboratory of Poundbury, an urban extension of Dorchester, UK, and just over two hours by train from London. Poundbury offers many fascinating and useful lessons for livable cities, towns and suburbs, and this is a poignant historic moment to gather there: the 30th anniversary of its founding by the former Prince of Wales (and the year of his ascension to the role of king). There has been enough time that the project's goals can now be evaluated on the evidence, and its positive lessons can be applied to benefit other places.
In addition to Poundbury, we will examine other case studies of pilot projects and urban laboratories, and what they can teach us. We will examine the latest research on urban sustainability, livability, health and well-being, economic opportunity, equity, and quality of life for all. And we will focus on knowledge into ACTION, and how we can overcome barriers, and take successful practices to scale. This will be an important opportunity to gather, assess, and confront our challenges.
Plenary events will occur at the Corn Exchange in Dorchester, a short distance from Poundbury, and tours, workshops and other events will occur in Poundbury. There is a wide selection of hotels in Dorchester, Poundbury, and nearby Weymouth, 8 miles south on the scenic Jurassic Coast. Regular train service connects Weymouth to Dorchester.
