Abstract: From research-based interventions in New York to a children’s local council in Malta, international minds look for ways to create better urban design to increase residents’ quality of life. Martina Borg and Daiva Repeckaite tune in to hear their thoughts. You will always require involvement from the top [decision-makers], if not to drive or encourage change, certainly to facilitate it. We should not be taking decisions that are inconsistent with progressive directions,’ says architect Jacques Borg Barthet. Of course there is much that residents can do to question how their own behaviour affects the use of urban space.
