Urban Transformation Conference (UTC 2015), TWNKLS at breakout sessions


How does the city see its future? What would that future be?

On Monday 18 May 2015, Rotterdam will host the second international Urban Transformation Conference (UTC 2015), its central theme ‘The Next Economy / The Next City’. It is not the goal of the conference to come up with ready-made solutions that may prove outdated tomorrow or perhaps next year, but rather to discuss the process of urban transformation, the ongoing design, development and governance of cities that are to be resilient and agile, no matter what happens. But how do we reach that goal and what challenges do we have to be prepared to face?

UTC 2015 explores a road map to the future of the city, introducing world-renowned speakers such as Jan-Peter Balkenende, Larry Beasley, Maarten Hajer, Ahmed Aboutaleb, Saskia Sassen and Henk Ovink. The conference will offer opportunities for quality networking, knowledge exchange and gaining new insights.
