Urban Future 2024: Ready for Rotterdam! #UF24
Event date 5 June 2024 – 7 June 2024
Location ROTTERDAM AHOY, Ahoyweg 10, 3084 BA Rotterdam, Netherlands
Urban Future has become Europe’s most-attended and inspiring conference for city changemakers, drawing more than 2,000 attendees yearly. It is a series of events, field trips, sessions and workshops where everything revolves around sustainable urban development. The main question is: How do we make our cities better?
From 5 to 7 June 2024, the city of Rotterdam will welcome CityChangers from all over the world at the main conference venue – Rotterdam AHOY. The entire first week of June will be filled with side events and social happenings throughout the city and beyond.
What is it all about?
The #UF24 core themes include Climate Adaptation, Building Sustainable Cities, Social Aspects of Transformation plus Personal Growth. The overall goal of the event is to accelerate the transformation to sustainable cities by connecting relevant stakeholders, regardless if they are representing municipalities, start-ups, NGOs or business industry leaders.
Rotterdam is the place to be for CityChangers!
This will be Netherlands' first time hosting such an electrifying gathering after it was held successfully in cities such as Stuttgart, Helsingborg and Oslo, since its inception in 2014. Rotterdam was selected to partner with Urban Future because of its leadership role in circular economy practices, its focus on energy reduction and technological innovation, and its general commitment to sustainability.
Who is the event for?
The Urban Future participants come from politics, business, industry, non-government organisations (NGOs) and associations. There are specialists from fields such as mobility, energy, real estate and construction, urban planning or resource management who meet at Urban Future at eye level – regardless of organisational form or hierarchy. They exchange ideas about how change succeeds or fails, visions, knowledge and concrete experiences and on how life in our cities can become more sustainable.
“Anyone with a passion for making their city a better place simply cannot miss this event as an attendee in June.” Gerald Babel-Sutter Co-Founder and CEO of Urban Future.
