This event invites leading practitioners, activists, scientists and the general public to explore how to meet the needs and aspirations of local communities through a new paradigm in placemaking.

Hosted at venues and online platforms around the world, this year's festival features talks, panels, workshops and other activities exploring the future of people-centred, community-led and science-informed city-making. The event aims to facilitate and encourage cross-chapter problem-solving, co-creation, collaboration and communication.

The CCF2021 is organised by The Centre for Conscious Design and co-funded by Conscious Design Kalpa, Lombardini22 and Hume.

Conscious Cities Festival 2021 takes place online and in various cities across the world from 24 to 30 October 2021.
