Read our report on last month's sold-out conference about 'Social Cities of Tomorrow', organized by Virtueel Platform and The Mobile City.

New technology such as location-sensitive devices, mobile apps, social media and advanced communication tools create both opportunities and challenges for the social development of our cities. These ‘social cities of tomorrow’ where technology plays a big role and is used to try to improve the social structures of the city were the topic of februari’s sold-out conference, organized by Virtueel Platform and The Mobile City. Key-note speakers and show-cases in a wide range of disciplines were used to paint an inspiring picture and pose challenges about current and future changes in civil engagement, social cohesion and community structures.

Of course, CITIES was present, and for those of you who weren’t: read our report on what you’ve missed!
