Livable City: its Concept, Perception, and Satisfaction

The quest for ideal communities continues since the ancient times. Cities, once thought of as attractive with bright lights and promises of better lives, are challenged with myriad of problems. As the costs of agglomeration surpass its benefits, a resurgence of attempts for making cities more livable has gained attention in areas of research and practice. Researches on livable cities are undertaken in a wide range of disciplines but tend to be scattered lacking consensus. This presentation examines various theoretical concepts of a livable city and varied criteria in implementing or evaluating livable city programs of several international organizations. It is followed by a discussion of results from a survey of citizens in major Korean cities on their perception and satisfaction regarding factors of a livable city.
