Cities are key to the sustainable future of our planet. Massive changes are necessary to fight climate change and social inequalities. But is technology really the most relevant solution to driving change? Urban Future believes that it is all about people: active, passionate and visionary decision-makers are the ones who can make our cities more sustainable.

The focus areas identified for next year's Urban Future conference in Lisbon have been decided upon after asking local and international stakeholders for their current high priority urban issues. For 2020, the thematic areas are:

  • Mobility;
  • Water;
  • Districts;
  • Leadership.

The global conference will attract professionals from a range of backgrounds including, but not limited to, architecture and urban planning, research and science, and national and regional government.
