RIBA North West and the Danish Embassy is co-hosting a series of seminars in Manchester to discuss how to create beautiful cities with a more resilient economy, healthier residents and a better quality of life.
Held between the 20 and 27 November at the Manchester School of Art, 'The Liveable City' will look at ways that planners, architects and local communities can play their part in the development of a dynamic, liveable city. Speakers will be a mix of Danish and British architects and decision makers.
In addition to the seminars, an exhibition at the Manchester School of Art will show some of the highlights of contemporary Danish architecture and give an insight into its core values.
Claus Grube, Danish Ambassador, said: "It is important for us to engage in partnerships and co-operations all over Britain, keeping in mind that there is more to the UK than London. In terms of size Manchester is comparable to Copenhagen, Denmark's largest and very liveable city."
The event is in partnership with the Manchester School of Architecture.
