EUROCITIES launched its 30th anniversary publication on 16 November, a collection of essays by young professionals.

‘Making cities. Visions for an urban future’ was launched at a reception in Milan on the opening evening of the EUROCITIES annual conference. The book comprises 15 essays from young professionals aged 25 to 35, with a further 15 contributions available on our website.

The young authors, including researchers, journalists, architects and urbanists, were asked to reflect on the future of cities and the challenges they may face in years to come.

The idea was to celebrate 30 years of EUROCITIES by gathering contributions from the ‘next generation’ of urban experts, who will shape the future of our cities in the years to come.

The contributions depict a variety of ‘visions for an urban future’, offering a fresh outlook on the contemporary world. They offer new approaches and innovative solutions to existing urban challenges, drawing on the experience acquired in the early stages of their careers.

A number of the authors were present in Milan to discuss their contributions in further detail and sign copies of the books.

You can read the book and contributions here.
