Urban Age Electric City conference London 2012

The eleventh Urban Age conference will take place in central London on 6-7 December 2012. This year the conference will focus on the ‘Electric City’ - a detailed investigation of how the combined forces of technological innovation and the global environmental crisis are affecting urban society.

The final programme is now available - to find out more, click here.

Organised by LSE Cities at the London School of Economics and Deutsche Bank’s Alfred Herrhausen Society, and supported by the Mayor of London, the two-day event will explore a number of themes that connect technology, the environment and cities. Speakers will be asked to tackle the social dimension of technological change, addressing questions of adaptation and change in individual and collective behaviour. The objective of Urban Age Electric City conference – and the research leading up to it – is to provide a fresh perspective on how to accelerate the current sociotechnical transition of cities in order to more effectively respond to the urgent environmental and economic challenges.

The invitation-only event will be held in London and will be attended by around 350 participants, with over 50 speakers drawn from cities and institutions in Asia, Africa, North and South America and Europe.
