Drawing on her new book Envisioning Better Cities: A Global Tour of Good Ideas (co-authored with Patricia Chase), Dr. Nancy Rivenburgh will discuss how the science of creativity and of communication can inform strategies for making cities more livable and socially sustainable. Based on an international study of successful public spaces, Dr. Rivenburgh will explore how “creative catalysts” can be woven into urban environments in ways that inspire people to more fully enjoy their city. She will also describe how cities can promote more “communication-rich environments”, which are public spaces that enhance the development of the social capital necessary for a sustainable future.
