“Sometimes I feel like I work on an island, separated from the world. But when I join the events, I remember others have the same struggles and they’re actually on my island too.”

FutureproofedCities Talks (for users only)

FPCtalks bring together the FutureproofedCities community twice a year. Get in touch with other tool users, expand your network and share experiences. We’ll take care of speakers with relevant ideas and meaningful workshops so you can tackle your city’s challenges. Go home recharged after a day filled with inspiration, good food and an even greater atmosphere. 🍰


Our next #FPCtalk will take place on May 23rd, 2019.

Many of you are working on new climate plans for 2030 or 2050. How do you shape such an ambitious plan or roadmap? How are you going to convert this into concrete, large-scale projects with impact? And how do you ensure that they are funded and realized?

Finding this kind of budget turns out to be one of your biggest challenges today ... and that's why our next FutureproofedCities Talk ... is all about money!
