Inclusive cities and infrastructure

Modern cities are home to a great variety of types of social groups. They can vary in age, gender, abilities, ethnicity, income and a host of other features. It always has been, is and will be a challenge to accommodate their divergent needs and yet this is imperative to make our cities and communities inclusive. Keeping urban infrastructure and services available and usable to all requires explicit inclusion policies, often resulting in specific institutional or physical adjustments that guarantee equitable accessibility and affordability. In this symposium, hosted by professors Nick Tyler (UCL) and Martin de Jong (EUR) a number of important and interesting contributions of making and/or keeping urban infrastructures and services open and attractive to all inhabitants of our cities will be presented. This comprises work on mobility, energy, waste recycling and various other infrastructure sectors.
