About The Event

THEME: As humanity confronts multiple historic challenges, our settlements and their characteristics are set to play a central role – especially so in a time of historic rapid urbanization.  Our cities, towns and suburbs are where we interact, move about, consume resources, develop and deploy our technologies, and create most of the impacts we are having on Planet Earth. In that sense, our settlements are major contributors to our challenges – but they also offer an important platform for joining up key issues of emissions and contamination, resource use and depletion, and ecological destruction, as well as opportunities for equitable human development, health, and well-being.

Following our highly successful 2023 conference in the UK, the International Making Cities Livable (IMCL) invites you to share your work, meet and discuss with others, and join in this collaborative platform for “research into communication.”  We will gather policy leaders, practitioners, community leaders and top scholars, to share lessons and discuss potential collaborations.  We will gather key partners from a number of countries to share their knowledge and collaboration. A major aim of the conference will be to serve as a “springboard” toward new research, new collaborative action, and new ways of communicating and driving the necessary transition ahead.

Our venue for the conference is the beautiful Bois Dore estate in Newport, Rhode Island, USA, made available through the generosity of Fairfax and Sammons Architects. This facility has ample space for plenaries of up to 150 attendees, as well as breakout spaces and areas for networking, book sales, and exhibition materials. Newport is centrally located on the US East Coast between Boston and New York, with bus and train service as well as lights into nearby Providence. The venue provides an opportunity for collaboration and partnership with a number of universities in Boston, New York and beyond.
