Topical event

The way we live our lives will change in the coming decades. The ways we work, learn, travel and find happiness will shift. This panel discussion will explore changes that are on the horizon – and how we will have to adapt to them.

Please join us to get a glimpse of the future. And afterwards, there will be networking and drinks

A number of factors will have a huge impact on the way we live, work, find shelter, move around, shop, socialise, go on holiday – and find happiness. They include technology, sustainability, protecting the environment and reducing the impact of climate change.

This panel discussion features experts from the worlds of architecture, mobility and marketing – and it will focus on practical examples in the cities of Ghent, Brussels and Antwerp.
