MIPIM 2019 launches

The 30th edition of MIPIM has launched "Young Leaders Summit" for the next generation to debate on tomorrow’s cities. MIPIM, the world's leading property market, will be held on March 12-15, 2019 at the Palais des Festivals in Cannes, France. This year the event will create a special room for the next generation architects to debate future cities. 

Themed as "Engaging the Future", this year's event will deliver a special edition to highlight global and societal topics impacting the real estate industry. The central theme will be explored by focusing on future economic growth, community cohesion and sustainability.

World Architecture Community is official Media Partner for this year's MIPIM and will be bringing you all the highlights & key sessions from the four-day event this March. 

Set as the very first section at this year's event, Young Leaders Summit will innovatively be staged as a major intergenerational debate on the future of cities and skills development. Through this event, focused entirely on upcoming generations, MIPIM plans to overview the next 30 years from the perspective of sustainable growth.

According to MIPIM's announcement, The Young Leaders Summit will focus on two areas: firstly on the results and analysis of a survey conducted by the institute – "a general interest accelerator" – on tomorrow’s cities, followed by a presentation of a study carried out in partnership with the Fondation Palladio on the talents, profiles and skills needed to drive growth in the property industry.

"The survey covers more than 20,000 French and international participants, men and women aged 16 to 34, including the MIPIM community," said MIPIM.  

The key topics were mobility, ecology, urban agriculture, energy, and quality of life. The results of this survey will be released on 13 March and will help launch a lively and engaging intergenerational debate. Here is a preview of the themes chosen by the younger generation: 

  • Promoting ecology on a daily basis and respecting the environment
