Cities of Tomorrow #7. Communities in focus.

There comes a time when we have to think global and act local. 

We. The community.  

Our common goal is to contribute to Romania’s competitiveness and to set the stage for sustainable development and smart solutions.

The seventh edition of Cities of Tomorrow, which will take place on 26th March 2019, at JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel, will focus on communities, business communities as well as the civil society, and the importance of their involvement in the sustainable development of regions and cities.

This year, we will add a new layer to the event concept: the civil society. A dialogue between public authorities and the business environment is important, but the involvement of the civil society is as necessary. Therefore, we believe that the key element in shaping sustainable development is the TRIALOGUE.

Moreover, we will focus on the role of communities in developing a city, a region – a country. The functionality of a community is not only determined by its inside, but more by how it collaborates with other communities. The way we understand to engage as a community, to have a unitary voice and to constantly get involved, defines our future

  • Event structure: 

Top national and international speakers will join the event, to share with us the stories of their successful projects.   

As usual, the event will host 8 roundtables and a marketplace, where sponsors will have the opportunity to present solutions and technologies for cities and regions, while representatives of local authorities and communities will present concrete projects, which they want to complete and for which they seek support of private actors.

Apart from this, Cities of Tomorrow #7 will also host a pitching event

9 participants, 3 categories: public administration, civil society and business environment. 1 jury: representatives of central & local authority, architect/planner, NGO, journalist, international expert.

We are looking for urban development projects, best-practice examples and solutions for smart cities in Romania, to be presented as convincingly as possible during a 5-minute-pitch, which will be evaluated by a jury, and the winners of each category will receive prizes that will encourage the further development of their projects.
