In 2014, URBAN FUTURE started as an idea for a workshop to support experts who were in charge of a city’s change process. In record time, it developed into Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities based on a very simple concept: having those who drive change in cities share their very personal experiences about how they did it – and cutting all the other crap. Today, URBAN FUTURE still is the largest event of its kind, but it is also a global community of more than 45,000 urban change agents, leaders and politicians who make cities around the world sustainable. This passionate community is sharing skills and experience on how to drive change (and how not to).
