“My City “

A Panel on “My City ”
as part of the 11th Annual International Conference on Psychology
29-31 May & 1 June 2017
Sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences

The Psychology Unit of ATINER organizes A Panel on “My City “, 29-31 May & 1 June 2017 as part of the 11th Annual International Conference on Psychology  sponsored by the Athens Journal of Social Sciences.

The phrase ‘My City’ means, first of all, a city that is familiar to its citizens, one that cannot be realized without specific conditions creating the feeling of being a part of the community, of possession and identity…However, My City can also mean a space where we can express ourselves spontaneously and can play with both people and space. This raises some important questions: How do urban design, architecture and landscape architecture affect people’s well-being and behavior? What design factors can develop a relationship between people and their city and make that city ‘My City’? How can public space change the community and individuals, stimulate social interaction among its users as well as interactions between people and space? Based on the research of borderland psychology, environmental psychology and landscape architecture, we encourage a discussion about the ways to create a new city that is familiar to its citizens.

The aim of the panel is to bring together academics and researchers of all areas of psychology, environmental psychology and landscape architecture and other related disciplines.

Fee structure information is available on http://www.atiner.gr/fees.

Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A Greek night of entertainment with dinner, a special one-day cruise to selected Greek islands, an archaeological tour of Athens and a one-day visit to Delphi.
