Leading Sustainable Futures: Innovative Approaches for Urban Environments

Swissnex in San Francisco is hosting a session with Swiss and US experts at SIGGRAPH 2024 to explore how new technologies such as digital twins, GIS tools, and AI are revolutionizing urban planning, creating smarter, more resilient, and sustainable cities.

Building on our Metropolis initiative focused on the future of cities, this session will explore the transformative potential of technologies such as digital twins, GIS/mapping tools, AI, and open-source platforms in urban planning.

The discussion will uncover how these technologies can lead to smarter, more resilient, and ultimately more sustainable urban environments.

Through the presentations of case studies and research projects from both Switzerland and the US, this session will provide concrete examples of practices and the utilization of advanced technologies to reshape our cities for more sustainable urban futures. Join us to gain insights and to get inspired by the latest practices in creating sustainable urban futures.
