We are pleased to inform you that the International Meeting on "Sustainable City and Creativity: Promoting Creative Urban Initiatives" will be held in Naples on 24 - 26 September 2008.

The aim of the Meeting is to analyze in depth principles and practices of the creative city for the formulation of policy lessons and recommendations able to contribute to the building of a creative city.

In particular, the attention will be focused on the following issues:
- What is a creative city; how the creative city actually works, which are the key features and the critical elements conditioning creativity; how ideas turn into urban innovations, the drivers stimulating a city to innovate, the barriers and the constraints
- Which are the benefits of the creative city in terms of competitiveness, environment, welfare, social stability, quality of life, vitality
- Which are the key assets, infrastructures and tools required to promote creative processes in cities towards competitive, sustainable and cohesive places, and how public policy can influence the creative city.

The Scientific Committee - composed by Sir Peter Hall, Tuzin Baycan Levent, Roberto Camagni, Giuliana Di Fiore, Francesco Forte, Klaus Kunzmann, John Rees, Peter Nijkamp, Pierluigi Sacco, Roger Stough, Luigi Fusco Girard - has been involved in order to identify the Meeting themes/contents.

The Meeting will open with a Round Table. There will be three Plenary Sessions and two Parallel Sessions. A Poster Session is expected too. A final document will be presented as conference outcome, to be sent to government institutions, city networks and research institutions.
