Vienna deputy Mayor Maria Vassilakou visited Utrecht (NL) and we interviewed her about Caring Cities.
Several European cities are in close contact how to create a city where citizens can meet, can get in closer contact and can care for each other. On Friday Oct. 14, 2016 Vienna (Austria) deputy Mayor Maria Vassilakou with her staff has spent an intensive day of meetings and discussions in Utrecht, the Netherlands. City officials and citizens discussed the possibilities of how to reconstruct existing cities into cities where people indeed meet and care. Elsewhere similar projects are on their way, like in Cologne (Germany): Caring Cologne. Interestingly enough on a local, not a national level.
Care ethicists Frans Vosman and Tessa Smorenburg interviewed mrs. Vassilakou.
