Festival of the Future City
October 18 , 8:00 am - October 20 , 5:00 pm
How do we make the cities that we really want to live in? The future of cities is fraught with challenges, but full of possibility.
The second Festival of the Future City takes place 18-20 October 2017.
Set over three days, this festival – which aims to be the largest public debate about the future of cities – brings together politicians, writers, artists, scientists, change-makers, academics, journalists, students, the public, economists, futurists, policy makers, roboticists, philosophers, filmmakers, think tanks, charities, social enterprises, city-builders and more. Join to explore the key issues for the future of our cities: how we can solve growing inequality and segregation; build healthy cities and places; foster sustainable cities; and explore a future of devolved powers.
