Well-being of Improvement. How to Measure the Effects for the City?

Creation of pedestrian and green spaces - the concept of the walkable city, as well as the concept of a resilient city, contribute to changing the goals and paradigms of urban development. The programs of urban environment modernization in Moscow and other cities of the world and Russia in recent years have opened up the city's space for citizens, changed the map of attraction points, ways of traveling around the city and consumption of urban space. Evaluation of the effects of urban design renewal remains a complex task at the intersection of economics, sociology, management and cultural studies.

  • What tasks should the improvement solve?
  • How large-scale projects of improvement affect the city?
  • How to measure these effects in terms of economy, trust, health, comfort?
  • How can landscaping become a tool for urban development in the long term?
