Today more than half of the people on the world live in cities, which are increasingly challenged to deal with the consequences of urbanization. Climate change, scarcity of resources, demographic change and air quality make sustainable development difficult. Urban Innovation Vienna acts as a partner and content design partner of the conference.
In order to ensure the quality of life for residents, cities worldwide take the scepter and act. Above all, courageous, committed CityChangers initiate and implement sustainable projects. Their experiences will be the focus of the upcoming URBAN FUTURE Global Conference, which will be held in Vienna for the first time in 2018.
In 2018, the URBAN FUTURE Global Conference (UFGC) will take place in Vienna for the first time. The conference will attract around 3,000 of the world's most committed changers from 400 cities around the world. From February 28 to March 2, 2018, Europe's largest event for sustainable cities will take place at Messe Wien. The four core topics of the conference are mobility, urban planning, communication and resource conservation. Vienna will thus become a platform for city planners that drive sustainable development in their cities around the world.
"Vienna's top position in various city rankings, in particular the 1st place in the comparison of Smart City strategies, is a clear order not to rest, but to further develop the various facets of Smart City in cooperation with other cities. The UFGC offers a perfect opportunity to engage in dialogue with international CityChangers", says Eugen Antalovsky, Managing Director of Urban Innovation Vienna.
