The Call for Sessions & Speakers for Urbanism Next Europe 2020 is now open: we are looking for bold ideas and great speakers, and you could be one of them!

Big changes are coming in Urban Mobility and Urban Development.

They’re coming fast, and will have impacts on land use, real estate, public space, building design, and all transport modes.

How can we make sure these innovations actually make our cities better?

Political decision makers, planning and design professionals, real estate developers, urban logistics experts, researchers, entrepreneurs, mobility service providers and corporate mobility planners: to go from a reactive to a proactive approach, we need to engage many actors.

Urbanism Next Europe will bring them together to discuss #WhatsNext for Urban Mobility and Development.
