JOIN THE URBAN CHANGE IN THE MAKING
We all need better cities – more efficient, future-proof and safe to live in.
With two out of three people predicted to live in the cities by 2050, urban stakeholders need to do a lot of planning to keep up with the rate of urbanisation. The demand for innovation in the sector is as high as ever. The time for urban transformation is now.
Urban Tech Forward returns with a mission to accelerate the development of net-zero cities. Designed to rethink spaces where people live and work – through the prism of decarbonisation and resilience – it brings together urban tech innovators, VCs, real estate developers, policy-makers and most prominent entrepreneurs to shift the way we build and make real progress on achieving a zero-carbon future.
