How do you drive the development of a circular economy when building a city? Digitalisation must be a key tool to meet this challenge. Giving materials an identity allows them to retain their value at the end of a building's life cycle. The creation of digital processes is the only solution to store and make available the vast amount of information required, from the material level to the urban scale.

Past urban models are no longer fit for purpose. They promote sprawl, pollute the air, as well as generate long commute, fragmentation and loss of social cohesion. It is urgent to makes our cities more sustainable and desirable, to ensure proximity to amenities and services in every neighbourhood, and to create public spaces that act as the “living room of city", a place where people meet, socialize as well as safely walk and cycle. This session brings global mayors and leaders that turn this vision into reality.
