The process of creation of a new direction in bioethics - urban - is extremely important in the global world.  Ukraine, as a post-socialist country, is a perspective field for urban researches. On the one side, it has a bright, specific culture, and on the other, the “invisible” citizens, whose voices remain unheard during the transformational modern conversions.  Participation in the conference on May 17-18, in Rijeka, is an opportunity to study the experience of different countries, different economic systems, etc.  to increase attention and understanding of the cultural and value context on the example of the particular urban cases.  The analysis of the conference does not pretend to enlighten the contents of the conference comprehensively, but rather to highlight the own impression of participation and to encourage discourse in the field of new bioethics direction.
