The International PRIX BLOXHUB INTERACTIVE

How can we make cities more liveable using digital technology?

Join us in BLOXHUB, when we celebrate the opening of PRIX BLOXHUB INTERACTIVE - an international award that celebrates the good ideas for how we can reach SDG 11 through technology: to make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

During this launch, you will meet keynote speaker Indy Johar, architect and co-founder of 00 in London. Indy Johar envisions a society with a radical hope built in and works with how to unleash the many to create, re-imagine and remake our cities together.

Together with Indy Johar, Natalie Mossin (Co-chair, UIA Commission on the UN Sustainable Development Goals) will discuss how and why we can and should focus more on using technology to obtain SDG 11 and create better solutions for our urban future.  

Join us on this great afternoon with talks, launch and bubbles. It is free of charge - first come - first served.
