WHERE #CITYCHANGERS MET

Who was there? 2,000 urban leaders, activists and influencers came together to act.  They represent, e.g. urban planning, architecture, mobility, energy, real estate, housing, tech and public administration.

What links them: a deep passion for sustainability and sharing their expertise, thus creating the unique and collaborative atmosphere of Urban Future.
