Known around the world as the Gangsta Gardener, in 2010 Ron Finley set out to reclaim the neglected dirt patches next to the streets by planting fresh produce. After a turf war with the City of Los Angeles for gardening without a permit, he managed to change the law and allow local communities to use parkways as communal gardens. Over ten years later, these gardens have not only grown fresh produce but have also created healthier and more sustainable communities. How can other cities become greener by leading their own horticulture revolution?

The effects of the Covid-19 crisis have shown the need to rethink our cities’ urban planning. This session aims to review the concept of ‘The City of proximities’ or ‘The 15-Minute City’, a model that pursues a new urban lifestyle to favor economic, ecological, and social value in the proximity by providing extensive access to essential local services within a maximum distance of 10 to 15 minutes on foot or by bicycle, to create a new multi-center city.

I’ve spent the last decade working with data; in this optimistic talk, I’ll share some extraordinary tales about what’s happening at the very cutting edge of data science – a host of surprising and delightful stories that demonstrate how far you can go when we look back at ourselves through the eyes of data.

How can the Urban Agenda speed up the transformation of cities in Spain? This Dialogue with the Minister of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda of Spain, will discuss this matter, together with pressing urban matters such as the evolution of the digitalisation of public transport, data sharing between private and public companies, and emission reduction in cities.

The language we use to think about mobility problems and solutions is not a mirror of reality, but profoundly shapes the reality we create. And in turn how people negage with each other and develop themselves while underway. If we think that the current unsustainable mobility system needs a radical change, we need to challenge this undelrying language and actively look for alternatives.

The future of the city is not the Metaverse made of 3D pixels but the Matterverse empowered by the Radical Atoms that blend bits and atoms.
Radical Atoms assume a hypothetical generation of materials that can change form and properties dynamically. It is a vision for the future of Human-Material Interaction, in which all digital information has a physical manifestation, thus enabling us to interact directly with it. In this session, we will discover how Radical Atoms could mean the next step in digital transformation and its contribution to the future of cities.
