About the Festival
The Nature of Cities (TNOC) Festival pushes boundaries to radically imagine our cities for the future. A virtual festival that spans 5 days with programming across five regional time zones encompassing the Global South, Global North, Asia, and Africa. It will be provided in multiple languages.The festival focuses on facilitating transdisciplinary dialogue, small group workshops, arts engagement, and fostering a collaborative spirit around solutions for our urban futures. It will even have online field trips in various cities!
The Festival is our community’s effort to be fierce in finding new ways to engage internationally and be more inclusive.
Last June in Paris, we organized the first TNOC Summit, where 371 people joined us from 52 countries for 3 days of transdisciplinary engagement. The meeting was a huge success, but it also left us with a lingering thought: How many thousands couldn’t come because of the physical and economic toll it takes to get to a physical meeting? How much carbon pollution did our event contribute to the global footprint? We thought, we can do better.
TNOC’s Global Festival comes to you online, and offers us the ability to truly connect local place and ideas on a global scale for much broader perspectives and participation than any one meeting in any one city, could ever achieve. Join us.
