People, Stories, Culture. It is the subject and the theme of the second Culture 2030 Meeting, organised by Eleusis 2023 European Capital of Culture, that is held from November 7 until November 10, 2019, at Centre of Eleusis/West Attica Labour Unions.
On today’s societies of knowledge and creativity, man is an essential resource of the city and the economy in general. Unlike the industrial era, when city development was based on the concentration of industrial production units, today cities compete with one another to attract “smart” and creative people. Smart cities are those that are inhabited by smart people. People with the capacity for creative thinking, imagination, able to recognize opportunity, to imagine new possibilities and shape them, introducing new data, new needs and new habits to their cities.
