II EDITION OF THE 'FUTURE CITIES' CONFERENCE
We invite you to the second edition of the conference "Future cities", which will take place on April 11 this year at the Copernicus Science Center in Warsaw.
An idea standing behind implementing solutions for cities of the future is to create safe and friendly space for a living which is efficient in terms of energy and economy as well as designed with respect for natural environment and people.
We want to raise participants' awareness of the latest trends and solutions regarding future cities and create opportunities to establish valuable contacts. Our speakers will present topics such as public consultations, placemaking, urban foresight, water management, adaptation to climate change, ecology, biophilia, technology in cities, energy and case studies from cities of the future.
Cities of the future are concentrated on the needs of its inhabitants with completely digitized systems, open in terms of data availability and functioning using mutual cooperation. Only a comprehensive and systemic approach will allow to transform current cities into cities of the future.

Due to the fact that we respect the environment and we are worried about the problem of global warming, we want our conference to be climate neutral. To achieve this we will calculate the carbon footprint of the conference and then the amount of CO2 will be compensated by planting trees and using the so-called “carbon credits”.
After lunch, at 15:00, there will be two parallel 30-minute workshops:
Pszczelarium will conduct workshops about beekeeping and production of honey in urban space. Practical solutions of experienced beekeepers as well as interesting facts from the life of bees will also be presented More info.
