One of the challenges of new cities is the reconciliation of tradition brought by cultural heritage with modernity and novelty that the implementation of circularity require. In general, the tradition evokes such values as respect for the customs and ideas that are transmitted by cultural artifacts as well as a restraint of actions that could possibly violate social expectations and norms. The modernity and novelty, on the other hand, require values such as openness, exploration, and a search of new. According to the Schwartz’s theory of basic human values, these values (i.e. named conservation and openness to change) are at the opposite sides of the model, meaning that they share the least motivational goals. In our work, we compare the existing well-being indexes from the perspective of cultural heritage preservation and models of circular city. The role of values is discussed.
