Europe's most inspiring event to make cities sustainable.
Hosted in a different city each year, thousands of CityChangers from all over the world share how they create transformation and which mistakes are made, accelerating change and successfully shaping the future of our cities.
A festival for passionate change-makers
WHERE #CITYCHANGERS MEET
Who is there? Activists, influencers and leaders come 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.
