Life, Work, Travel. New economic senarios

Work, travel and private life appear increasingly interconnected. Digitization, the growing attention to sustainability, the desired balance between profession and private life, new ways of working are economic and social evolutions that are reshaping our way of producing and consuming. The questions we ask ourselves today are: which ways of living and working will evolve in the future and how will they contribute to redesigning not only society and economy but also urban, suburban and public spaces in the coming decades? What are the challenges?

We will discuss these questions in an open form, in three "speaker corners" and an arena, with researchers, guests and the public.
