Future of Urban Work Summit

  • Share

July.9.2019

The Future of Urban Work Summit is looking to bring together 60 diverse youth across various work sectors together in Edmonton for a 5-day experience. We are looking for 20 youth based in Edmonton and 40 youth from around Canada. You do not need to be an expert. In fact, we believe the Future of Urban Work needs to be designed from youth across the range of areas within live, work and play that may a city youthful.

As a delegate, you will have the opportunity to connect with a network of 60 young leaders across Canada that will share the future of work through an immersive experience, blending city learning in our host city with a unique innovation process, allowing you to make real input on the future of work. Delegates will arrive to Edmonton on October 16, with opportunities to network with other city builders and engage in the city. On the first full day, delegates will have the opportunity to learn and unpack current understandings of the future of work, such as automation and technology disruptions, with thought leaders in the space. Delegates will then co-design future scenarios of urban work with a youth perspective, through a design jam. On the last full day, delegates will work to push these innovate ideas into tangible recommendations for cities across Canada that can serve as the roadmap to the future of work.

What’s Included as a Delegate:

  • No cost participation in the Future of Work Summit, with unique access to thought leaders and networks

  • Flights to Edmonton, for those living outside the city

  • Shared accommodation provided at our Summit location, Crash Hotel

  • Free meals (and good coffee) for the summit duration

  • Reside in a Canadian City
