Foreword

Foreword

The city carries with it the promise of emancipation and social mobility. Its bright lights enthral and attract. A beacon of great hopes, the city is also a melting pot of inequalities that polarises and divides, pushing those who are struggling to find their place to its margins and into its darkest corners. Hence there is a need for continuous invention to “make society”, to “make the city”, so that ideas, like residents, move from the outskirts to the centre and vice versa, and so that the city is welcoming to everyone: children, women, residents and visitors of all ages. New dynamics are already at work and re-examine our basic needs – education, work, sport, culture and social bonds – to give a new meaning to a multi-secular urban civilisation based on “living better together”.
