CITIES

What are the main factors and instruments for the effective cities’ development? What are the strategies, practices and cities’ management models used by modern city managers? Why do cities need master plans and what are the principles they should be built upon? How to keep citizens’ interests in the spotlight?

Leading international and Russian experts in territorial development, entrepreneurs and government officials will meet at the «Living Environment: Cities» forum in Veliky Novgorod on September 19‑21 2019 to share their own experiences and answer these and many other questions in order to identify directions of development of Russian cities till 2024. Forum will discuss new instruments of strategic planning of cities, which will help reach the goals set in the national projects of the country, and new models of city management – particularly, the role of mayors.

Veliky Novgorod

One of the most ancient Russian cities with a unique cultural and architectural legacy.

Veliky Novgorod is one of the main spots on the touristic map of Russia. A city with more than a thousand-year history. It’s here where the Russian state was born. Red brick of the Novgorod Detinets, white stone of the ancient churches and the brilliant domes of the Orthodox cathedrals of the historical city center are considered a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

This year the business program of the forum will take place literally by the walls of the Novgorod Kremlin – in the Regional Arensky Philarmonic.
