Our cities were built for the industrial revolution. Several of today’s problems stem from this simple fact. From our transportation systems to education, we have been building atop a foundation that has long outlived its purpose. Unconstrained human actions and a fix-it-as-we-go approach have brought us to a world where we consume far more than we produce. The structural changes required to create a sustainable world demand not just innovation but radical new thought and the will to act.
The youth of today continue to voice their strong commitment to creating a world that supports all forms of life. It is our responsibility to create an enabling environment for them. We believe that Cities can be a canvas for them to build on!
FutureSake takes students behind the scenes and shows them what running a modern city is like. Participants get an unfiltered look at the systems, processes and societal structures that determine life in a city as seen from the point of view of engineers, entrepreneurs, law makers and more. This juxtaposition of the past, present and future of cities gives them a springboard to launch their thoughts and ideas to imagine their own solutions to create sustainable cities.
