Most of the world’s population live in urban sprawls. We are starting to the think smarter about how we get around our cities and what materials we use in a more thoughtful, ecologically responsible fashion. We talk to Government representatives and companies who are designing, building and future proofing our environments.
The first Speakers to be announced
WHAT WE WILL TOUCH UPON
Governments around the world are embracing and enabling a more connected society. Learning from behaviours and patterns, cities are evolving with technology. We bring experts from different governments and services to explore use-cases and narratives from different countries.
By digitizing processes and making organizational changes, institutions and governments can enhance services, save money, and improve citizens’ quality of life. Can this translate to small business? We look for the point of intersection.
The advent of automation in the automotive industry is bound to intersect the mass mobility of citizens. Where will this leap in technology first interact with us and what are the innovations that will make our travelling easier and more friendly.
Sustainability and the circle economy relies on system-wide innovation aiming to redefine products and services to design waste out, while minimising negative impacts. Underpinned by a transition to renewable energy sources and sustainable materials who are the global players enabling a more healthy, long-term oriented City life.
DESIGNING URBAN SPRAWLS
Urban Design needs to be adapted to our environments rather than reinventing the cities from the ground up. We talk to the world’s innovating experts on how we design and build for the future recognising our past efforts.
