On 27-28 June, the city of Yakutsk will be hosting the international conference ‘Civic Initiatives – The Formula of Mutual Trust’, which will provide a platform for exchange of good practices between urban communities. The purpose is to offer a space for debate and reflection on strategies to strengthen the development of comfortable, accessible and safe cities, through a process that includes preserving urban spaces and the environment.

The agenda for the event is based on new models of city management, encouraging citizen participation, converting cities into business hubs and developing communication technologies for urban governance.
