IFHP Social Cities – measuring what matters

January 24 @ 09:30 - 15:00

IFHP is creating a new tool ’The Social Cities Index’ that will help urban leaders measure and manage ’social sustainability’ in cities. We do so in a partnership with London School of Economics, Ramboll Management, Realdania and selected Danish municipalities. You are kindly invited to join us at the CONFERENCE: MEASURING WHAT MATTERS on January 24, 2019, in BLOXHUB Copenhagen.

Here we present the new IFHP Social Cities Index and discuss its potential to improve livability and social cohesion in cities. By joining you will get the unique opportunity to see the prototype of the Social Cities Index with data from selected, Danish municipalities. In addition, you will meet other leaders and experts that are passionate about creating inclusive cities. The workshop will be facilitated by experts from the London School of Economics.
