The attendance of the Editor of UDF at a Making Cities Livable Conference in Venice in 1986 was one of the early influences which resulted in the setting up of Urban Design Forum in Australia. Many Australians have subsequently attended IMCL conferences and have found them both stimulating and challenging. Invariably they are held in interesting places and provide an opportunity to network with a wide range of people committed to improving the quality of life in cities across the world.
Henry will be greatly missed by those near to him, and we send best wishes particularly to Suzanne, but she, the IMCL Board and staff have indicated that they will continue the work he considered so important. The 44th IMCL Conference on “True Urbanism and Healthy Communities” will be in Santa Fe, USA, 17-21 April, 2006. If you would like to register or are interested in presenting a paper, please send an abstract (approximately 200 words) as soon as possible to [email protected] Details will soon be available on the website at www.LivableCities.org
