To celebrate Urban October 2015, Arcadis set up the ‘Urban Solutions’ challenge on October 28.
The United Nations has adopted 17 new Sustainable Development Goals. One is focused on the development of sustainable cities and communities. Arcadians all over the world had the chance to share their innovative ideas for the perfect city of the future. How will the next generation live and get around?
Over a 24-hour period on 28 October, workshops were held in Arcadis office in 13 cities around the world – New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, London, Rotterdam, Berlin, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Sydney, Dubai and Sao Paulo. Hundreds of people from all areas of the business shared ideas, expertise and urban solutions for future cities – our future cities. The sessions focused on three themes that make every city livable, competitive, and sustainable: resilience, mobility and regeneration. Moreover, Arcadians shared their ideas online.
The culmination of this will be brought together in a book, shared with UN-Habitat and published online in early 2016.
