Urban development in the 21st century
Never has urban development been as complex as today. Numerous internal and external factors need to be aligned to develop livable, resilient, sustainable and inclusive cities:
Global trends like climate change, migration or shifts in demography increasingly need a local response.
The great digital transformation changes organizations, economies and personal lives. Cities need to actively shape it.
Technological innovations help us create smarter cities – but the pace of innovation is incompatible with traditional urban development cycles.
The Vision: Future-Proof Cities
Our Vision at UGI is to shape future-proof cities. We perceive cities as complex adaptive systems and work between cities, businesses and research to define local pathways of innovation and urban development. By linking technological innovation, urban development and social and ecological premises for sustainable and inclusive cities, UGI helps create cities that are ready for the future!
