From May 20 to May 23, 2015 in the capital of Udmurtia, the city of Izhevsk, I passed the II All-Russian Forum of the Live cities of UrbanFest.
It is possible to judge the city by concrete results. For example, how the yard looks, can judge as far as the city is developed. But all this is impossible without people, without activists. When we speak “citizen”, “citizen”, we mean the person active and responsible, the person active. Begin with yourself, as they say. Probably, those cities will survive in which there are city communities of active citizens. They involve other people in city life, carry out various actions, establish in the city bookcases, for example … So the consciousness of people starts changing gradually. It is only necessary to come and to make for the city something good.
