additional remarks The world is closing in And did you ever thinkWhat will the future look like? The future's in the air, we can feel it everywhere We're blowing with the wind of change. (Adapted from Klaus Meine) How do you dream about the future?Can you depict what the future of our cities would be? What are current trends in mobility? Will the future be chaotic or sustainable? Will there still be the possibility of a green horizon for cities in the face of climate change? Each city is unique and so are its challenges in the scenario of ever-increasing population growth. Without any change, mobility will collapse in just a few decades. We need disruptive change that at the same time considers the climate crisis. So, what are the sustainable solutions already at our disposal, and how can we participate in shaping urban centers around us? In this lecture series, we will uncover some answers to these questions, undoubtedly uncovering more, but smarter questions. We will listen to the wind of change, learning what today’s actions are. We will take you to the magic of the moment, sources of inspiration where the brightest ideas take place. Finally, we will invite you to share your dreams about the future of our cities and together nurture sustainable ideas to enable a better urban space to live in for everyone.
