Prague, Forum Karlin, June 14–15, 2018: extra SHARED CITIES: CREATIVE MOMENTUM free events
This year in Prague we ask – is it time to reconsider what a better city looks like? The tide has clearly lifted all boats over the last few decades of urban development, yet gentrification and rising costs of living pose considerable challenges for city leaders, investors, planners and architects to design a city that works for everyone. As always, reSITE will connect innovators across sectors to find solutions. Prague, centrally located in Europe and the world, offers a unique architectural setting to make new connections, inspire more positive impacts, and find more solutions to improve our lives in cities. Through panel discussions, keynotes, field trips, interactive workshops and tours, again – the event seeks to be a one-of-a-kind experience combining the best ideas in the world from the bottom to the top.
