A global initiative part of the UIA World Congress of Architects Copenhagen 2023 to enable youth-led ideas, perspectives and action toward Sustainable Futures – Leaving No One Behind
Next Generation City Action 2023
The future of cities leaving no one behind by young academics, entrepreneurs & influencers
Next Generation City Action is a global youth initiative that engages selected young students, early-stage technology entrepreneurs and young leaders from a diverse background to challenge existing practices and contribute with their innovative solutions towards sustainable and inclusive futures with industry, academia and public sector.
1 programme, 3 tracks: We bring forward a hybrid innovation program before, during and after the congress with 3 tailored tracks to accommodate for 3 different profiles of youth (academics, entrepreneurs and influencers) to accelerate their path, along with nurturing the strength of a diverse community of youth. Facilitation and tools on innovation and universal design, technical sparring, online/hybrid and local events, and a 8-days acceleration programme in Denmark are some of our ingredients.
Young international talents can broaden perspectives, increase innovation and push thinking, collaboration and action as part of UIA World Congress of Architects 2023. We believe that it is through an intergenerational knowledge exchange and collaboration that we are heading towards a more sustainable future.
