48th IMCL Conference on Planning Healthy & Child-Friendly Communities
Charleston, SC, USA October 17-21, 2010
International Making Cities Livable Council & City of Charleston, SC.
The conference will focus on how to design healthy communities, and how to improve children's health and development by improving the built environment, and making nature spaces and community places accessible. The conference will bring together 350-400 delegates - elected officials, practitioners and scholars in planning, public health, urban design, landscape architecture, architecture, transportation planning, pediatrics, child development, and land use development from around the world to present health effects of the built/natural environment, health impact assessment tools, guidelines for designing healthy neighborhoods, and examples of cutting-edge improvements in the way developers build, and how cities reshape existing neighborhoods.

Architecture-Urbanism is dedicated to a) those who are interested in creating livable and sustainable environments and buildings that meet socio-cultural and socio-behavioral needs of people, environments that are responsive to historical, traditional and physical constraints, b) to those who are interested in finding panacea for the ills of our globalized world, and c) to those who are interested in regaining what cultures and societies have lost by the acts of architects. ____________________________________________________________________________
