THANKS FOR IDEATING WITH US!
Thanks to all of our partners, speakers and participants from across the Boston innovation community for an amazing day of ideation around the Future of Cities . The ThinkTank organizing team produced a recap video and a booklet that provide key takeaways and outcomes from the day. You can request a hard copy of the booklet, or view the digital version, and the video below.
According to the United Nations over 50% of the world’s population is living in cities today. Projections indicate that this number will increase dramatically in the future. As a result, cities are facing challenges and strains related to housing, transportation, infrastructure, climate change, employment, energy, safety, education and health care.
For one day, the ThinkTank brought together 50+ students and faculty from local universities, industry thought leaders across different disciplines, design thinkers, community partners, and city representatives. We challenged our assumptions, explored possibilities, co-create ideas and inspired to envision the “Future of Our Cities” for all generations.
We are excited at the opportunity this event represented, to build stronger collaborations and partnerships between the academic community and industry and to convene innovative minds to develop future scenarios to give more insights across disciplines and sectors.
