About UrbanXFestAn Annual Event For Urban Warriors!
While we observe World Cities Day every year, we must also celebrate the local heroes that bring positive change to their cities. From doctors, teachers, city planners, and small business owners to the general public, we play important roles in driving urban change. UrbanXFest wishes to honor our urban warriors and inspire others to make a difference. Come aboard and experience the second UrbanXFest this October 2021!
*UrbanXFest 2020 was proudly featured in UN-Habitat Urban October 2020 Report.
Inspiring Local Urban Changemakers
Urban changemakers originate from diverse backgrounds, but together we can make our cities better. In fact, diversity is crucial to understanding how urban challenges can be approached and solved to the benefit of everybody that uses those urban spaces. Cities will only truly thrive in the future when there is synergy within the communities that occupy them.
With this in mind, UrbanXFest will invite speakers to talk about architecture and urban planning, emerging technology, the environment, social enterprise, and much more. Our goal is to make cities smarter across various sectors and inclusive for all.
Activating Smarter & Inclusive Cities.
A smart city is more than just integrating technologies. It also encompasses a well-designed urban environment and a robust social engine ecosystem.
Adopting Technological Solutions
In a diverse business and social environment, there is a huge demand for streamlined tech integration in cities. This is to ensure easier access and user experience for everyone. Cities must also embrace homegrown tech talents and support the local tech ecosystem to thrive.
Safer And Convenient Urban Areas
Urban citizens urgently need a huge mindset change in designing our commercial and public spaces. It has to be secure and conveniently accessible for our most vulnerable groups in society, that is children, women, the elderly, and the different-abled. More than that, this change will catalyze a prospering business and tourism sector.
Improving Urban Livelihood
In many progressing cities, there will some who are left behind and struggles. Not only the elderly and the different-abled people but also the urban poor, LGBTQ+, refugees, and other marginalized communities. Long-term solutions are required to address issues faced by these unfortunate communities.
