In collaboration with the Waterkant Festival the UBC Smart and Prospering Cities Commission invites you to its seminar "The City of the Future".
Part of a mega-region. Creative. Radically digital. International.
Is that the City of the Future? In this seminar we explore the thesis that the city of the future has these four key characteristics.
➔ In an increasingly complex world cities won't stand alone but will identify itself as essential components of a mega-region.
➔ How can creative forces initiate, promote and shape transformation processes in a city?
➔ They will be radically digital, offering frictionless citizen services and enabling sustainable, efficient infrastructure.
➔ And finally the city of the future will be international, leveraging highly functional partnerships that benefits each other and our entire globalised society.
