OUR CONFERENCES

The International Making Cities Livable (IMCL) conference series began in 1985, founded by Suzanne Lennard, a Bristol, UK architectural scholar, and Henry Lennard, a Viennese medical sociologist. The Lennards were passionate about sharing the lessons of livable cities and towns between regions and countries.   After their passing, the Lennard Institute was established to continue this important series. Each year, the conference alternates between venues in Europe and the USA, exchanging lessons and effective tools. Each year, the conference features participants from countries all around the world, sharing their lessons in a unique peer-to-peer setting. We gather not only to share our lessons with one another, but to examine case studies of great urban places in person.
