Beyond Mega City

Future World Vision

Future World Vision takes you inside deeply researched, wholly plausible future worlds, allowing engineers to plan for tomorrow with their work today. Mega City 2070 is part of the future world. But there is more!

Floating City, Rural City, Frozen City, and an Off-Planet City — all present themselves for further exploration as we tackle the many questions ahead of us. Join this exciting session as a panel of experts looks beyond Mega City 2070 and into other future worlds.

Learning objectives

By attending this session, attendees will learn about:

  • What kinds of innovative, resilient, multi-modal floating cities will engineers need to design to take on the rising water?
  • How will agricultural communities thrive, and what will make them self-sufficient?
  • Will climate change create new opportunities for commerce and communities in the Arctic region?
  • How will engineers create the fundamental elements of a built environment under hostile off-planet conditions? How will the first settlers form a viable, sustainable off-planet community that will last for generations?
