Are you curious about the role of technology in tomorrow’s cities? Why citizens are ‘future proof’, but their cities are not? Which challenges cities face and how they should be dealt with? And last but not least, how it should be laid out in a political agenda to influence current political debate? Join the international shadow EU-summit ‘Managing tomorrow’s cities’ for students from April 19-22 in Amsterdam.

The international shadow EU-summit is the platform for students to find answers to these questions and contribute to the solutions of today’s and tomorrow’s urban problems.

Keynote Speakers
The working method involves students, young professionals, like-minded people and policy makers participating in a series of sessions. Input for these sessions will be provided by prominent guest speakers such as: the mayor of the island Samsø (Denmark), world-renowned experts and members of parliament of the Netherlands and the European Union.

Four themes on managing tomorrow’s cities
Parallel to the European Urban Agenda, the conference will revolve around 4 themes. Each day one of the following themes will be discussed:

Tue 04-19-2016 Green and healthy cities
Wed 04-20-2016 Creative and inclusive cities
Thu 04-21-2016 Smart cities
Fri 04-22-2016 Politics and the city

The days are divided between a morning program and an afternoon program.

Morning session (09.00 till 12.00):
The morning program consists of master classes with a limited amount of participants (100). During these masterclasses, participants get the chance to dive deeper into the problems that cities face on the road to becoming ‘future proof’. Several municipalities will provide cases based on current problems. Participating municipalities are: Amsterdam, Rotterdam, The Hague (Den Haag), Eindhoven and Utrecht.

Afternoon session (13.00 till 17.00):
In the afternoon the program consists of an open conference with workshops, political debates, national and international guest lectures and an innovation-fair, where innovating businesses get the chance to display their products.
