We are happy to submit Cittaslow application dossier of Yeniboğaziçi Municipality at the Cittaslow International Assembly 2013 .The inspiration of Cittaslow was the Slow Food organization. Cittaslow’s goals include improving the quality of life in cities by slowing down its overall pace, especially in a city’s use of spaces and the flow of life and traffic through them.
