The Value of Culture in the 15-Minute City
After the approval in 2015 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, many cities drew up their "Local Agendas for Sustainable Development." Recently, these Agendas have incorporated the model of the "15-Minute City," a prototype of the polycentric city based on proximity. In the "15-minute city," culture becomes a factor to stimulate participation, feeding planning, a sense of belonging, and connections between citizens. In what becomes an urban ecosystem, culture thus plays a key role for the creation of participatory networks.
