Photos must illustrate or answer the following questions:
* What is a livable city for you?
* What creative efforts can we do to make our cities more livable?
It is one of the British Council’s goals to contribute to more livable and inclusive cities in the Philippines. One way is by using art and creativity as means of engagement and inspiration for urban dwellers.
Livable cities possess, among others, a vibrant street life, green spaces, an efficient transportation system, healthy inhabitants, an inclusive economy, and safe, accessible public spaces.
