Ljubljana will be an ideal and environmentally friendly city as well as a little cosmopolitan metropolis – such a future is envisioned in the City of Ljubljana’s strategy until 2025 which “should stimulate the creation of a self-image of the city that shows what the city means to its residents and what their expectations about its future are.” However, the residents’ expectations are sometimes not fulfilled, and while some remain passive, others engage in creating alternative urban futures which satisfy their needs or (professional) ambitions. The presentation will build on case-studies from Ljubljana to discuss imagined urban future(s) and their implications on urban life.
