The President spoke at the VIII Moscow Urban Forum
Russian President Vladimir Putin noted the key to the development of cities of the future lies in harmony between the technical sphere and nature, in freedom, in creating a wide range of opportunities for residents and their work, recreation and sports. The head of state said this, speaking at the VIII Moscow Urban Forum "Megacity of the Future. New space for Living" held in Zaryadye Park. He noted that more than a half of the planet’s population and three quarters of Russians live in cities. According to forecasts in all countries, urbanisation will continue to grow rapidly. According to Putin, those cities that can not find a harmonious development model will inevitably face serious social problems and imbalances. "I am sure that the key to the development of cities of the future lies in harmony between the technical sphere and nature, in freedom, in creating a wide range of opportunities for residents and their work, recreation and sports. This would enable them to combine their efforts and implement scientific, creative, social and cultural projects to make the city comfortable for everyone: children, young people, older people and those with disabilities, so that everyone becomes a part of a united urban community," he said. The Moscow Urban Forum is a major international congress devoted to the development of global spaces and megacities. The platform brings together representatives of Russian and foreign city administrations, architects, urban developers, heads of finance companies, investors, as well as journalists and members of the public.
