2018 Sharing the Legacy

The fifth in the Valletta 2018 Foundation's series of annual conferences, this conference encouraged broad reflection on the central issues that define urban life by channelling its discussions through the basic question of “What makes a city better?”. This reflection aimed to understand how cities can be shaped to better suit the needs and desires of the individuals and communities that it hosts, whether on a permanent or temporary basis.
