MEETING OF THE DOERS
Activists and influencers come together to act. They represent, e.g. mobility, energy, real estate, public transport, housing, urban planning, tech, and public administration. Their joint passion for sustainability and sharing expertise – independently of their field, hierarchy, or sector – creates the unique Urban Future atmosphere of collaboration.
FOCUS ON THE HOW
INPUT THAT MAKES A DIFFERENCE
You’ll join the most engaging exchange of hands-on expertise in city transformations. Connect with your tribe, those who are committed to change-making processes.
