Discuss with us!

We want to discuss together with you:

The Urban Thinkers Campus 2021 will take place as a hybrid event. This means that our Urban Labs can be visited live as well as virtually on 2 different days.

Our online Urban Labs are additionally streamed live. So you can decide whether you want to actively participate and contribute in a conference or passively watch the livestream.

You can also switch to another room at any time during the livestream.

The UTC team looks forward to your participation.
