The European project Human Cities: Challenging the City Scale analyzes, tests and implements the integration of citizens into community creation of public spaces. Together with the local civil initiative
"Skupaj na ploščad!" and other partners in the Ruski car neighbourhood, the Urban Planning Institute of RS carries out different activities to improve the quality of life. We are testing different tools to give the residents a more active role in designing the future of public spaces in this neighbourhood. 
The two-day event Human Cities: Public Spaces for Local Life addresses the question of participatory planning of local public spaces in economically, socially and ethnically more and more diversified city communities. A special emphasis is placed in recognizing common values among residents and other users. 
The event includes a research seminar, experimental workshops held in the public open space of Bratovševa ploščad area and an exhibition.
