About this event

Who is Homo Urbanus?
They are citizens, especially the metropolis citizens, children of the 21 century, also village inhabitants who in reality have the city lifestyle. The evolution of man and country development goes on endlessly. Some time ago we stopped to live statically. We work with the several projects at the same time, we travel a lot, we have plenty of on-line friends and the geography of our communication is widespread and does not have the limits, we have thousands of parallel lives, and all of this is the product of modernity.

Why are these people interesting to Donetsk?
Donetsk – is one of the fast growing cities in Ukraine and Eastern Europe. The processes of infrastructure improvement are visible more and more every year. Donetsk is changing and now it shows not only the industrial power, but the provision of the urban amenities.
But does everything keep abreast of the times and sufficient to the new man development in the modern Donetsk transformation? Is the city comfortable for the Homo Urbanus’s needs?
