Future Cities Week

Creating Smart, Sustainable And Livable Cities Of The Future

Tuesday 7th July - Friday 10th July

Future Cities week has been designed to give students the opportunity to design smart, sustainable connected cities of the future. Over the course of the week students will be exploring some of the exciting projects being developed around the world, before taking their learnings as they create their own city of the future. 

 

The week will feature online classes run over the course of the week on a range of topics from technology and smart cities, sustainability and green design, and transport and connection.

 

With programs created by a team of passionate, young engineers, entrepreneurs, designers and teachers, these programs have been created to give students the opportunity to create in a fun and relaxed online environment. 

 

These classes have been designed for passionate students wanting to take an active role in designing what their cities will look like in the next 50-100 years. Future Cities Week is open to all students with seperate programs for primary and high school students, and a range of topics for different interest areas. There is no prior experience needed, all we ask is that students are eager to learn.

How The Workshops Will Run

 

We've planned an action-packed range of online workshops for students over Future Cities Week. These workshops are designed to be highly interactive and lots of fun for participants and work using three main tools. Here's how the workshops will run:

 Zoom Call

The workshop will be taking place via Zoom. Students will be connecting with our facilitators on a Zoom video call for the class.

Digital WhiteBoard

During the workshop, students will be sent a link to a free online whiteboarding tool. This will allow them to bring their ideas to life and receive guidance form the facilitators.

Slack Channel

Throughout the class, students will also be using a collaborative Slack channel as the facilitator shares resources, links, and videos for the students. 

All of the tools above are free, simple and easy to use and our facilitators will be available in the lead up to the class to help answer any technical support questions that you, or your students may have.
