What makes a good city?

On the Contrary by IDR

Nov 9 2021 • 30 mins

What makes a city liveable? Who should benefit the most from the growth of a city—financial investors or its residents? On this episode, Sheela Patel, director of SPARC, and Ireena Vittal, former partner at McKinsey, answer these questions and more.

Highlights:

  • Who are our cities built for? Whose voices do we prioritise in order to plan our cities better?
  • Climate change is not a separate space, but a lens that we must adopt while planning resilient cities.
  • We need to ensure continuous dialogue between those governing the cities and everyone living in the cities.
  • Citizens must be active participants in the planning and operation of cities.
