Self-driving cars, vertical farming and everything else we’re facing in the future – What does a smart city mean in reality?
The Gather theme of Urban Planning and Society focuses on the democratic city and creating urban spaces for everyone, but also on the augmented and technological city. What are the wireless and connected layers of an urban space that we don’t see, but that influence and govern our way of living and moving around the city? What does a smart city mean in reality? And when many of our urban areas grow even bigger and more populated, what are the services needed, the social and green environments required and the optimal transportations? With everything from self-driving cars to vertical farming on the horizon, we need to re-establish the way we will live with technology and what goals towards living even tighter together are physically, and virtually, possible.
Gather is both a conference and music festival where you will meet your new best friend, dance with your future love, and innovate with your next business partner.
Gather 2018 takes place in Stockholm, September 13–15 and will include 50+ speakers, performances from all around the world, music at several venues and Innovation labs solving actual business challenges.
