The FUTURE CITIES FORUM Conference, Brno, Czech Republic
International conference on the regeneration of towns and cities.
The Future Cities Forum is a network for urban renewal in Central and Eastern Europe, with links to the international urban community. Based in Prague, the Forum allows specialists in metropolitan development to exchange ideas and expertise.
The Future Cities Forum Conference is the launch event for the network.
What are the new trends in urban thinking? With presentations from cities around the world, and from the commercial and public sectors, the conference will cover:
- Economic and social urban regeneration. In the present global financial crisis, how can we afford to regenerate our towns and cities?
- The function and appearance of future cities. What will cities look like?
- Intelligent cities and buildings. How will technology transform services?
- The future of energy. How will technology meet the threat of global warming?
- Communication and transportation. How will people be connected to each other and to their surroundings?
- Culture and Creativity. How can we use culture and creativity to regenerate urban areas?
What are the innovations? What are the challenges? You will hear from planners, architects, service providers and other experts in the development and regeneration of urban areas.
The Future Cities Forum Conference is being held as part of the Urbis Invest Exhibition, a major event for attracting investment to cities, on 22 and 23 April in Brno in the Czech Republic. Now in its fourth year, this exciting Exhibition attracts over 100,000 visitors and this year those numbers are expected to soar, as it is a highlight in the calendar of events of the Czech Presidency of the European Union.
