More and more people live in ever larger cities around the world. It creates a host of challenges, and it has put the question of how to create liveable cities for all on top of the international agenda. 

To help further the discussion, the Danish Embassy in UK organises The Liveable City conference in partnership with leading UK stakeholders. Denmark has a long tradition of creating beautiful cities with healthy residents and a high quality of living, and The Liveable City conference will be a celebration of great achievements in architecture and urban planning.

The Danish Embassy in the UK invites businesses, politicians, professionals and the general public to take part in the conference’s many talks, seminars and debates. With this Danish-British dialogue, we aim at inspiring each other to find new ways in which our cities can become better places in which to live, work and play.


The Liveable City conference is organised in collaboration with the Royal Institute of British Architects and forms part of the programme for the London Festival of Architecture.
