As we look forward, are we likely to see a mass exodus from cities? What do we read from current trends of people seeking solitude, escape and outdoor experiences? Right as we assess the impact for cities and city tourism organisations, Jonathan will be taking a long-term view on how cities might evolve, shift and adapt in view of changes in the way we live our lives. How are we likely to experience the world around us and what is the significance and meaning the urban environment for future generations? This is your opportunity to hear from a world-leading expert and someone who will provoke a different train of thought, inviting fresh perspectives on digitalisation and smart cities and invite us to consider the long-term impact of current events on our society as a whole.
