On 21st and 22nd November the Cité du design will host the kick-off meeting of the European project “Human Cities, Challenging the City Scale”.

This project is one of the 21 of 74 selected by the European Program Creative2020/Culture. With the Cité du design Saint-Etienne as leader and coordinator, it gathers 11 partners from various fields: universities, design centres and design weeks, ICT platforms, service design and creative design consultancies.

 

Over a period of four years (2014-2018) they will share their know-how in innovating with people in the urban space using design as a creative and sustainable tool. The partners will work on a continuous human-driven and cultural programme questioning the position and status of people in relation to their city and ever-changing flow space(s) : How to design urban spaces with people taking into account their perception and interaction with the contemporary ‘flow space’?

During Belgrade Design Week 2009, you enabled participants to meet with representatives from different countries, in professional, as well a sin social settings, which provided the opportunity for spontaneous interactions, where everyone was engaged in true cross-cultural dialogues. This allowed participants from different countries to become familiar with attitudes, ideas, and practices on the common topics of design.   We had received first hand accounts of current situation in creative fields and intellectual status of Belgrade Design Week, exchanged ideas and knowledge, mixed and mingled among each other. And the unique opportunity was given for all of us to establish professional relationships and develop lifelong friendships. We were eager to discover Belgrade and had a unique chance to enjoy the city! No doubt, it was our first, but not our last visit to Belgrade. All the best to Belgrade Design Week for the future to come! We are looking forward to be a part of your success
