Detail any impact the conference may have had since it took place.
Impact of a conference like ours are not necessarily measurable objectively; what it generated though were crucial questions around how exactly we may concretise the question of liveability in our individual and collective lives. This does not come with a formulaic answer but one that is indeed helping us to push ourselves toward thinking about how we may ‘do’, ‘claim’ and ‘act’ liveability, in addition to writing about it.
