RIGHT TO THE FUTURE

Part of the World Urban Campaign’s
Palermo Urban Thinkers Campus

PALERMO URBAN THINKERS CAMPUS
6th – 7th – 8th April

The event is promoted by the United Nations with the aim of sensitizing and creating awareness among citizens on the New Urban Agenda.

The Campus is designed as an open space for workshops and seminars, an opportunity to share and promote positive urban transformations.

Main outcome of the Right to the Future international debate will be a set compelling visions for the future of Palermo.

INTENSIVE SCHOOL
18th / 22nd April

Through the Intensive School, we will transform those visions into real plans.

Five days to understand, innovate and prototype solutions for Palermo’s most challenging urban issues and, if they work there, for the whole world.

Thirty international participants will get funnelled into an intensive program that will look at human-centered design as a medium to tackle pressing urban problems and inspire new hopes for the future of cities.

Citizens will be our starting point, technology and Service Design will be our tools, prototyping our way to start new possible ventures.
