Urban development touch points

Urban development processes must allow for more ‘touch points’ between bottom up and top down. The processes themselves need to be well designed and led by strong teams. Digital solutions and innovative user group involvement open new channels of communication that can lead us to better and more sustainable urban design.

Urbanformat, a new collaboration between three companies, URBa, Splint and INT will be presenting their ideas around these urban development challenges. 

There will be time for feedback, dialogue and informal discussion.

Sign up on to attend. It´s free.

We meet the last Wednesday of the month for talks about creating impact over a cup of coffee at the library Deichmanske Hovedbibliotek.

How we got started

At the summer party of 2014 Splint, In Good Company, The Social Business Club, and World Wide Narrative sat down and talked good and hard about all the different topics and challenges revolving around their businesses and our field social innovation and social entrepreneurship.

Together we decided that we needed a place to meet regularly so that the conversation could keep going. Thus came this meetup group. And more people joined us as they too needed an arena like this.

So now we meet once a month. A morning coffee for early birds.

Jeg har jobbet med digitale fortellinger siden våren 2007, og jeg kommer nok aldri til å stoppe med det. På denne reisen har jeg snart fått møte nesten 460 mennesker som har vært med på å fortelle sine historier. Jeg føler meg veldig privilegert.
