Semi Permanent Festival of Creativity & Design joins the Audi House of Progress with a series of events to devise a blueprint for the future of our urban environment, presented in partnership with Audi.
As we quickly adjust to new ways of socially interacting, attempt to reduce our carbon footprint, move towards an electrified future, and demand a better, more cohesive way of living, our cities are radically changing — or need to if they’re to remain vibrant and appealing to current and future generations. In this special capsule edition of Semi Permanent Festival of Creativity & Design, we bring together a group of leading creative, design and sustainability innovators to share insights and unpack how the future of urban design can evolve to better serve its citizens and its environment. From the greening of our cities and decarbonisation, to accessibility in design and electrification of vehicles, this series touches on issues that affect all of us, as well as offering a blueprint for our urban centres of the future.
