Future City Summit (the “FCS” / the “Annual Meet”) is an annual meeting hosted by the Good City Foundation, supported by 35 City Partners in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America. The annual meet promotes insights of cities in the domains of social technology innovations, urban design and public governance and provides an inclusive networking platform with future young city leaders.
In the 7th Annual Meet, with the main theme “Legacy Rejuvenating – Little Dragon Rise Again”, we strive to reassess the future linkage of city branding to the core-competitiveness of Hong Kong, while the city seeks for a common ground to reassemble all passionate and critical minds to reinvigorate the socio-economic vibrancy and connectivity to the world.
While the city is determined to repurpose towards innovation and technology hub upon its strong global financial foundation, a stronger spirit of socio-economic and cultural coherency shall fill up our neighborhood and the brand name of Hong Kong through diversities among 18 districts. Besides the Keynote and Panel Discussion in the morning, the key session “Our City Festival Sandbox” is an open workshop in the afternoon for all stakeholders and voices to share, debate and brainstorm constructively towards a shared brand that truly reconnects us in Hong Kong to the world again.
