Inviting Future City Makers to our Sustainable Cities Conference this July 12 and 13 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands

Who shapes the future of cities we want? What role will educators, students, and young professionals play? What are the skills, competencies, and tools needed? What are the opportunities for bridging education, research, and practice for sustainable cities?

The Sustainable Cities Conference will be a milestone in our efforts to facilitate knowledge sharing and international collaboration for sustainable urban development. Through the conference, we aim to connect and engage educators, students, researchers, cities’ associations, urban practitioners, and future city makers in meaningful and dynamic discussions on the topic of sustainability in cities. 

Join us in our two-day conference in Rotterdam, the Netherlands - one of the most sustainable cities in the world - to discuss and debate about the future of cities. Get inspired by programmes for building capacity of future city makers. Find out about the labor market perspective in urban development. Engage with urban networks and research organizations. Learn more about examples of good practice in cities.

The conference is supported by the SUSTAIN Project which aims to promote sustainable urban development in higher education and to stimulate cooperation between European and Asian higher education institutes. 

The conference is hosted by the Institute for Housing and Urban Development Studies (IHS); the Dutch Research Institute for Transitions (DRIFT); and the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM) at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR), the Netherlands.
