Call for Papers & Design Awards Competition – A Healthy City for ALL - deadline November 15

From: domainremoved <Suzanne>
Date: Tue, 30 Oct 2018 18:53:45 +0000

Dear Mayor and Council,

You are invited to propose a presentation – full, short, or Pecha Kucha –for the 56th IMCL Conference on A Healthy City for ALL that will take place in Portland, Oregon, June 17-21, 2019. If you missed the previous announcement you may be pleased to learn that the deadline has been extended to November 15.

If your city has achieved great things, but you do not wish to make a presentation yourself, you may like to alert your planning staff. They will also be able to submit a project for the Design Awards Competition.

How can the built and natural environment make the city healthier? We invite you to share your city’s most successful recent work in these areas:
• community public places
• planning for active mobility
• 10-minute neighborhood urban planning
• human scale, high density, mixed use urban fabric
• affordable housing, housing the homeless
• accessible nature and healthy food

Since the poorest neighborhoods still suffer the greatest health problems we are especially looking for innovative designs and strategies to rein in housing commodification, prevent or slow gentrification, and end homelessness!

To submit a presentation proposal, please copy and paste: http://www.livablecities.org/conferences/56th-conference-portland/call-papers
To submit a proposal, for the Design Awards Competition please copy and paste:
Other city representatives at this conference urgently need your city’s ideas, and design solutions.

I look forward to receiving your proposal for a project or presentation, and hope to see you in Portland next year!

With best regards,

Suzanne H. Crowhurst Lennard Ph.D.(Arch.)
Director, IMCL Conference
