About the event tells urban bureau Big City Lab.
In Kyiv, a meeting was held with the residents of Mariupol at the initiative of the city authorities to discuss their vision of the restoration of the city after de-occupation. In this way, the vision of the revival of the city Mariupol Reborn was launched.
The Mayor of Mariupol, Vadym Boychenko, noted that the concept should be developed already so that it would be ready by the time the city is liberated.
The Big City Lab team already helped rebuild the city after the invasion of Russian troops in 2014: then they developed sports, culture, business, and public spaces.
Today, urbanists gathered a multidisciplinary group of 37 specialists from different countries of the world, analyzed the experience of rebuilding cities after the Second World War, natural disasters and held a workshop with experts to plan the first steps.
On February 14, they discussed the wishes of Mariupol residents regarding the urban environment, municipal services and interaction with the authorities, education and medicine, economy, ecology, culture, sports, traditions, security, as well as recommendations and wishes directly to Big City Lab specialists from Mariupol residents.
