> Social Cohesion
> Opened fora and the themes that are being discussed are as follows:
> * Tackling crime for successful cities. Mr. Jordi Borja's paper can be
> consulted in this forum. In the paper, Borja explains that there is an
> ambiguity concerning crime prevention: on the one hand, it is a right which
> can not be denied to anyone, and, on the other hand, some planing policies
> play against the effective promotion of security. The negative effects of
> the traditional prevention policies should be added to the effects of city
> planing. Mr. Jordi Borja, acknowledging some positive results of these
> traditional crime prevention policies, bets for a more integrated approach
> with planing policies. This new approach ought to revitalise the public
> places as a meeting point of the different local communities. Hence,
> communication and solidarity would be enhanced. Apart from this paper, it
> can be found some other contributions asking for ideas to help them to
> improve the prevention of crime in their localities.
> * Local government: working for older persons and young people. The
