Cities are poles of business activity, employment, education and innovation; their role is crucial in promoting growth that is sustainable, economic and socially inclusive, as well as in surmounting environmental and social challenges.

However, people – humans – need to be at the heart of every strategy. Central to this is how cities respond to their citizens’ changing needs and the way people relate to each other.

Real estate stakeholders are increasingly incorporating the social dimension in their projects. This is to strengthen social interaction, build communities and a sense of belonging, as well as supporting an improved quality of urban living.

This main topics will be tackled next 22nd and 27th of november at the MIPIM meetups in Barcelona and Madrid, where we will present all the news regarding MIPIM 2020 and the new institutional stands.
