Call for ideas

We invite you to share with us your ideas for the conference. Which ideas, initiatives or methodologies should we include? Think of a title, short description including format (e.g. lecture, poster presentation, workshop, debate, plenary or break-out), ideal audience (number of participants, background) and objectives. Interactive sessions are a plus! 

Need some inspiration? Have a look at these out-of-the-box formats: 

  • Tech-powered panel: audience votes, answers & asks questions via an app to contribute to the session.
  • Work-a-thon: hands-on work on case studies in teams
  • Lightning-talks (10-15 minutes TED style talks) or Pecha Kucha (20 slides in 20 minutes)
  • Brain dates: participants offering and requesting knowledge are matched together

Fill in your ideas in the attached form. Please submit your proposal by e-mail to by June 1st, with the subject 'Empowering Cities and Citizens'.

Please share with your network or potential collaborators.
