  7. Village of 2050

    Although the majority of the population of the Czech Republic now lives in towns, we cannot ignore the fact that the vast majority of the territory has a character of the village settlement. The countryside and its landscape are essential to ensure the livelihood of the entire population, their recreation, and a healthy and sustainable environment. What are the issues of the village of today? How should it be dealt with? What is the village of the future going to look like?

  8. Water areas as potencial for city/village activities

    Quality of life in the cities and villages can be influenced by many different tools. One of them can be revitalization of watercourse, realization of new and reconstruction of existing water elements, revilatization of waterfronts and ports. Cities can obtain better environmental quality, better atractivity for living, recreation, sport, culture and also better protection against flooding. Unkempt and not maintained water areas represents for teh cities and villages hiden underused potential which offers many new forms of public spaces and housing.
