Smart & Sustainable Living

Humanity is facing important challenges to future-proof our living environment. Population is getting older and becoming more heterogeneous and multicultural. Available space is becoming scarce, and the boundaries between individual, communal and public spaces are blurring. How can we guarantee qualitative housing and living? Make smart and sustainable living affordable for everyone? Develop the limited space as sustainable as possible? Experts in Flanders are tackling this challenge.

By 2050, 75% of the world’s population will live in a metropolitan area. In line with UN Sustainable Development Goal 11, Flanders is working on the development of neighbourhoods and cities that are resilient, sustainable, inclusive, and resistant to the effects of climate change.

In other words, you organise your conference in the heart of a region that is committed to your key domain. In government, businesses and consumer organizations, experts are looking together for solutions to make our living world future-proof. This assures your association or PCO of a large support base when organizing your conference.
