Greg Lindsay to Guest Curate reSITE 2018

The annual international forum showcasing better solutions for our urbanized world will be back in Prague on June 14–15, 2018.

"I’m honored to join reSITE as guest curator after having had the pleasure of watching it evolve as a speaker and attendee since 2013. I’m also humbled to tackle the biggest issue cities face: where and how people live, and how to do it fairly, equitably, and sustainably. The right to the city begins with housing, and so that’s where the theme of reSITE 2018 begins,” explains the new program curator of the event Greg Lindsay, a writer, journalist and urbanist.

Greg Lindsay, Senior Fellow at New Cities Foundation and Contributing Writer at Fast Company NYC talks about what we can do to improve our urban design. "Cities are not machines but they are not living creatures either. They are social reactors - they fuse together social networks, create network organisms." Greg devotes part of his lecture to big companies such as Google or Facebook. These companies need spaces with urban energies where people connect more, share themselves, their pasions, projects, expertise and talents. Big companies also want to maximize serendipity in order to explore the unknown knowns; things we don't know we know. Let's look at ways we can leverage the city to make connections - professionally, personally and creatively.
