Intellectual product and innovative project "Town for women and children" provides a fresh look at the development of urban space. The emphasis is on low-cost activities that contribute to creating an "improvement environment" that is convenient for socially vulnerable groups of the population. This project shows the concern of local authorities about people, as well as encourages citizens themselves to participate in urban development.
Many modern towns are uncomfortable for ordinary people, and often even hostile to them. These towns are designed mainly for cars and drivers. There is no space for children and women. When young people grow up, they leave the towns and do not come back. As a rule, awareness of the problem - towns without a future - is lost in the everyday race of life. People realize it when there are no longer those with whom town’s tomorrow is connected. This can be overcome by changing lives for the better, claim the project developers and suggest ways of dealing with it.
Local governments of towns and settlements, experts involved in urban space planning, and non-governmental organizations.
