Urban Future Global Conference 2020
Lisbon was chosen to host the 5th edition of the URBAN FUTURE Global Conference (UFGC), Europe’s largest event for sustainable cities, that will bring together around 3,000 decision makers and professionals from over 60 countries from 1st to 3rd April 2020.
This conference, which is considered to be a multidisciplinary urban event, has brought together, over the past four editions, people willing to be drivers of sustainable change in the cities where they live, creating synergies for the development of concrete projects.
These “CityChangers”, a term used to identify all those working to develop more environmentally friendly cities, include mayors, city planners, architects, and representatives from a variety of sectors such as real estate or mobility.The conference - one of the signature events of the Lisbon Green Capital 2020 program – is centered around four thematic focus areas: mobility, water, districts and leadership. In every edition, the focus areas are adjusted to the specific needs of each hosting city, taking into consideration all the inputs from local and international stakeholders regarding the current high priority urban issues. Each one of these 2019 themes will allow for the debate around creative and feasible ideas to reorganize Lisbon, as well as other global cities.
See you in Lisbon!
