Description of the research topic:

We study the role of socio-cultural innovations in sustainable urban/local development, their relation to social economy, social capital, their impact on citizens’ quality of life and well-being; their role in regional and/or city branding. Cities are “social laboratories”, where these innovations can be tested, as many cities today are unhealthy living habitats both in physical and metaphysical sense. The aim is to find those ‘healing solutions’, which make our cities more sustainable and the citizens more satisfied with their life.
