In a world set to build 13,000 buildings each day between now and 2050 to support the expected population of 7.7 billion people living in cities, we will need to rethink the “Business as Usual” mindset of how we build and manage our built environment.
This need has been already emphasized by the continuing rapid urbanization, climate change and recently, the destructive COVDI-19 pandemic.
As our urban environment is reaching a tipping point, both the Real Estate and AEC Industries, slow-moving and classic by nature, will have to be redefined from within.
What should the profile of the next generation of workforce look like to accelerate change and innovation?
Join us for a discussion about one of the most exciting topics since the start of the pandemic, with highly respected thought-leaders, on how they envision the “Urban Technologist” of the future and its pivoting role in creating more resilient models.
