URBAN FUTURE global conference - Oslo

22 05 2019
 Oslo   22/05 - 24/05/2019

The URBAN FUTURE global conference is Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities. It’s the place to meet the most passionate and inspiring CityChangers from all over the world.

Cities are key to a sustainable future of our planet. Massive changes are necessary to fight climate change and social inequalities. So far, much is talked about technological solutions.

 

We believe, that what is most important for solving the urban challenges are the people driving positive change.

 

The URBAN FUTURE global conference is the world´s largest meeting dedicated exclusively to CityChangers – decision makers who actively, passionately and effectively make cities more sustainable.

 

In 2019 the  event will be held in Oslo, the European Green Capital 2019. Join us at #UFGC19 in Oslo and become part of the CityChangers-movement!

 

Thematic focus

The thematic areas are changing slightly from year to year, taking into consideration all the discussions we have with stakeholders who are sharing their view on the most relevant topics for the future of cities.

 

URBAN MOBILITY
Mobility holds one of the critical keys to sustainable cities. The decisions we make (or fail to make) today will have a tremendous impact on how we live in the future. Connect with passionate mobility experts, city planners, public transport specialists and visionaries who already make sustainable mobility happen.

 

GREEN BUSINESS & INNOVATION
Businesses are an essential part of the solutions for more sustainable cities. Let’s collaborate, innovate and grow a sustainable economy. Hear from those green businesses, leaders, visionaries, innovators and collaborators from around the world just how private businesses and city administrations are teaming-up to make cities better places.

 

LEADERSHIP
The transition to sustainable cities requires change on many levels, not at least of personal choices and how society sets priorities. And what these numerous change processes need the most is passionate leadership: whether personal, business or political leadership. That’s what we will talk about.

 

BUILT ENVIRONMENT & ARCHITECTURE
Whether it’s the amount of CO2 connected to construction, existing buildings’ hunger for energy, creating cities we want to live in or questions of land-use: many challenges must be solved. Meet the most forward-thinking urban planners, architects, engineers, developers, construction companies and investors.

 

3000 Attendees, 400  Cities, 50  Sessions, 200  Speakers.
