Solving TODAY's challenges:
how to drive fast and
collaborative innovation

A global pandemic — along with today’s profound technological, economic, environmental and societal shifts — calls for immediate re-thinking of how we design, operate, work and live in our cities. 

We have to make our cities smarter, more resilient and more livable. The good news is that building smarter cities is also a multi-trillion-dollar business opportunity.

Accelerating change requires us to tap into our connected age’s most powerful human tool — collaboration — with the interdisciplinary networks of leaders who can build the future. 

Communitech, in partnership with CityAge, invites you to The Future of Cities, a free interactive event on November 24 that will provide you real tools in how to drive urban innovation.

Join our  network of cross-sector experts to begin a vital dialogue to prepare our cities for the future.
