The design of tall buildings and cities is facing new challenges derived from the demand for better social, economic, and environmental outcomes. The traditional premise of the skyscraper is now confronted with a new idea of density, one that seeks more than just functional space and a marketable skyline. This context forces us to raise the bar, rethink attitudes, and choose paradigms for far more sustainable, livable cities.
CTBUH invites you to submit a proposal for a presentation addressing the theme of “Tall Excellence: Seeking the Ideal in Vertical Urbanism." Take this opportunity to drive thought-provoking and inspirational discussions by sharing your ideas or showcasing your work.
We are pleased to inform you that the next REAL CORP conference will take place at Vienna International Airport from 14 to 16 November 2022. We are confident that the event can take place as a real-life event, depending on the developments of the Covid-19 pandemic, the conference will be handled as a hybrid event.
Submission of abstract until 6 June 2022
It is our pleasure to invite you to join us at the ICLEI World Congress 2021 – 2022: The Malmö Summit in Malmö, Sweden.
Every three years, the ICLEI World Congress is the moment for local and regional governments to come together to exchange, celebrate and recognize the critical contributions of cities, towns, and regions towards our sustainable future.
The Malmö Summit will bring to life the motto: Sustainability. Together. Through interactive mobile workshops throughout the city, a focus on equity at the event, and the unveiling of the Malmö Commitment, which will ensure a space for cities, towns, and regions to engage on equity and sustainability into the future, The Malmö Summit will remind us of the power of working together towards a sustainable future.
The 2022 IWA International Conference for Water Safety Planning (IWA – WSP conference) will bring together leading international experts from academia, industry, government, policymakers/authorities and other organizations to actively exchange, share, and challenge state-of-the-art research on water safety planning (WSP) that could contribute practical knowledge in the implementation of WSP to the key stakeholders involved in providing safe drinking water. Early bird registrations are available until 1 April.
Many conferences are being organized for the latest edition of Autonomy. This year, we want to focus on the main challenges that lie in making cities more adaptable, resilient and efficient. Since the global pandemic has raised imperative issues pertaining to the movement of people and the organization of cities, the restructuring of post-Covid19 cities will be a central subject of the conferences. Two main themes will be addressed during the conferences: multimodal travel and the development of automation for smarter cities.
If you are seeking to rethink the boundaries of your actions, or dreaming of a place to make your work visible and find new partners, Energy Cities’ Forum is for you.
We want to show how vibrant the local energy and climate initiatives are! By exploring different forms of cooperation, we want to highlight actions that go beyond fighting and adapting to climate change, to reinvent local economies and policy making at local level.
The event is scheduled for February 16-17 with a new “2+1” format: two days, along with a special session focused on the Asia-Pacific region timed specifically for audiences from the region. We are committed to utilizing the digital format to gather and engage with an even more diverse audience from across the globe and to offer more resources on pressing development issues related to sustainable transportation and mobility.
Join Next City for a panel discussion to explore where are the urgencies and opportunities? Despite legislative stagnation, what’s happening on the ground with clean energy improvements, disaster resilience, and green jobs workforce development? How have cities made progress on environmental justice, for communities that have suffered the most as a result of unchecked capitalism?
REAL CORP 2022 conference will be held from 14 to 16 November 2022 in Vienna. Depending on Covid-19 developments, we will be likely to provide a hybrid conference, hopefully with a clear emphasis on the real-life part as this is what we have been hungry for since the start of the pandemic more than 2 years ago.
The European Summit of regions and cities is a gathering of local representatives organised every two years by the European Committee of the Regions to discuss the EU's future challenges.
This time, the Summit aims at increasing the impact and outreach of the Conference on the Future of Europe. The voices of regions and cities must be heard and listened to, as they are key contributors to the European project and play an essential role in placing citizens at the heart of Europe.
With the support of the French hosts and co-organisers, youth representatives, and a wide participation enabled by the hybrid format, the 9th European Summit of Regions and Cities invites citizens and their elected representatives to help design a more resilient, cohesive and democratic European Union.
29 March - 31 March
TNOC Festival pushes boundaries to radically imagine our cities for the future. A virtual festival that spans 3 full days with programming across all regional time zones and is provided in multiple languages. A core philosophy of the festival is to foster inclusivity and lower barriers to participation. The festival focuses on facilitating transdisciplinary dialogue, small group workshops, arts engagement, and fostering a collaborative spirit around solutions for how to build cities that are better for nature and all people.
In connection with the European Climate Conference organised by the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union (FPEU), the 1st Climate Chance Summit Europe will be held in Nantes, on 7 & 8 March 2022.
The Climate Chance Europe 2022 Summit is a unique opportunity for the convergence of different climate actors around the central theme: “EU Green Deal: local governments, businesses and Citizens at the heart of the European transition”.
We know the ‘why’ of circular transition, but the ‘how’ is less straightforward. Cities are hubs of large and complex flows of people, money, energy and materials, and their circularity is affected by a range of stakeholders, both directly and indirectly.
REFLOW is an EU Horizon 2020 innovation action that has been running since 2019, with the aim to develop solutions that enable the transition of European cities towards circular and regenerative practices. The project will come to an end in May 2022, after three years of intense work across Europe on finding and developing scalable solutions for six material streams: textile, plastic, wood, food, energy and wastewater heat.
Urban change-makers meet in Helsingborg. Say "hej" to this mid-sized city in Sweden – which is one of the most innovative and rapidly changing cities in Europe.
Three years’ worth of preparation has gone into its development. We’re excited to show you the sessions and tracks we have planned for you! Browse the programme, expand your network, and learn from your peers.

Autonomy Paris 2022, the world’s leading mobility trade show, is the meeting place for all leading players, policy makers, governments, corporates, institutions, NGOs, startups willing to meet, exchange and develop innovations to push us into the future of Sustainable urban mobility.
Join us for the workshop Futureshop: Hyperconnected city, taking place on March 3rd, 2022. This workshop is organised within the scope of the activities of The Hague Living Lab in the LEAD project.
City Logistics and Physical Internet are two major concepts aiming to profoundly change freight transportation and logistics for increased economic, environmental and societal efficiency and sustainability.
The living Lab of The Hague envisions a ‘Hyperconnected City’ where the city logistic web of numerous multi-modal logistics and transportation service providers can co-operate to ensure smart consolidation and synchronisation. In the workshop, a digital representation of this vision will be presented, together with other Dutch Digital Twin experiences.
The final event of the EU-funded MORE project, “Better streets for better cities”, will take place in Brussels on 17 February 2022.
As the MORE project draws to a close, the experts and practitioners who have contributed to shape innovative concepts and tools for the reallocation of road space will gather in Brussels to present their experience and findings.
Over the past three years, MORE has worked to identify existing and future pressures on busy roads connecting five European cities with the Trans-European Transport Network (TEN-T). Such pressures include factors such as demographic change, technological advances, economic growth, and the evolution of lifestyles.
On 17 February, the event will address the concepts, context and challenges of street design, and will provide participants an opportunity to get acquainted with the street redesign process developed my MORE. Representatives from the cities of Budapest, Constanta, Lisbon, London and Malmö will share their experiences and tips for success.

September 7-10, 2022!
The pandemic has upended lives around the globe, changing how we work, how we move, how we shop, and how we socialize. While we stayed home to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities from Covid-19, it is clear that economically and physically healthy communities rely on the connections that we all have to each other. That is why we continue to look for ways to connect with each other, to learn, adapt, and build a better tomorrow after these tumultuous times.
Given the continued uncertainty of in-person events, we are continueing with virtual events and are planning several webinars in 2022. We plan to bring the Urbanism Next Conference back in person, in Portland, OR, March 6-7, 2023. Sign up for our newsletter to get notice of the Call for Proposals in Fall 2022. We look forward to seeing you next year!
