FN har sat byudvikling på listen over de 17 sustainable development goals, fordi vi ser en voldsom tilflytning til byerne. Det sættes der bl.a. fokus på til et symposium i BLOXHUB d. 21.-22. maj, hvor du kan få adgang til de eksperter, der er med til at finde de gode løsninger på, hvordan byerne kan blive bedre at bo i gennem digital teknologi!
