Urban Future Golbal Conference
Short description
On 22nd and 23rd of May in Oslo took place the Urban Future Global Conference where many cities and entrepreneurs exchange their experience and vision about what we can do to improve cities.

Since the first BC Lab edition is coming to the end, the team is contacting companies to execute the second edition. In this context, have had the opportunity to attend this conference was a source of inspiration since two of our BC Labs are about Urban Creation and Recycling and Green Production, so both of them are closely connected with green actions and urban changes.

Actually, one of the BC Labs is based on recycling and participants now are doing no labour practices in waste separation companies. Green Production BC Lab in this edition is focused on gardening and participants make great efforts on greening some municipality areas.

On these days in the conference, we had the opportunity to know about the changes that are carrying out in many places of the world related to make cities more friendly to pedestrians or riders, for example. 
Moreover, we met many entrepreneurs who are using innovative products or services in order to improve sustainable green cities.

It was amazing to met committed people who fight against climate change, especially when a few of them were children of six years talking about measure air pollution in schools. There is not doubt that cities are changing and are more aware about the risk of ignore climate change. So that, MILMA will continue developing BC Labs in which people become concern about the importance of sustainable cities.
