Creative City Camp is an event to think about and discuss the future of the cities we live in through the introduction of research fields and initiatives with front liners from around the world. This year, we focus on the two metropolis cities, Barcelona and Tokyo.

The program will be broadcasted online from SARUYA HOSTEL in Fujiyoshida, Japan. Speakers will discuss the concept of a Sustainable City and consider Fujiyoshida as a place where potential solutions can be found for the future of urban development.

We hope that this session will provide an opportunity to think about a positive future through discussion. Using “sustainable city” as a hint, we will explore what kind of interesting city we would like to live in in the future.

“What kind of city is sustainable and livable?”

As the impact of the new coronavirus increases the need to maintain social and physical distance, there is a growing interest in avoiding dense work styles and urban-intensive lifestyles. Living a slower life in rural areas, working online and remotely; How can local cities and small towns develop sustainably? How do we promote healthy local revitalisation?

In the first part of the seminar, we will consider sustainability in Japanese with the keywords of circular economy and slow city. We have invited Azby Brown from Safecast, Shinichi Tsuji from the Sloth Club and Tsuyoshi Yagi, DOSO CEO, Co-founder of Saruya hostel and artist residence program. The talk will be moderated by Ryoga Baba.

In the second part, David Tena Vincent of FabCafe Barcelona, Pablo Valero of City of Future, and Thomas Diaz of FabLab Barcelona will be invited to discuss the concept of FAB, which is currently prone to innovation, and consider the city of the future from the perspective of FAB. The talk will be moderated by Kelsie Stewart.

There will be time in both sessions for participants to interact and ask questions.
