Why develop cities?

Many Russian cities developed according to Soviet standards, which prioritized production rather than people. In a modern post-industrial society, the basis of the economy has become not production, but people - human capital.

A person who is not tied to a plant or a factory chooses where to live. According to sociologists, in 2001-2010, almost 2 million Russians moved to Moscow from the regions - much more than to other Russian cities. Residents of the areas travel to the capital of Europe for cultural experience and quality of life. They choose a safe, comfortable and varied environment. Therefore, public spaces are becoming the main "currency" of cities in the struggle for promising specialists.

The economy of the 21st century is an economy of knowledge, services and technology, which is impossible without a city dweller. And public spaces provide communication and exchange between residents and affect the quality of the urban environment.
