Munich. Since October 2019, the FUTURE FORUM by BMW Welt has been a new meeting place and a modern dialog platform for movers and shakers with an innovative spirit. From a series of keynote speeches and panel discussions, visitors will get an insight into ideas, concepts and technologies that could soon shape the cities of the future. The FUTURE FORUM by BMW Welt has now found a visionary cooperation partner – 1E9. The think tank with its own community, digital magazine and events is a home for people optimistic about the future. On the one hand, it provides information about new technologies and their social implications, and on the other hand it offers anyone thirsting for knowledge a space which can be a hotbed for constructive discussions and joint ideas.

Shaping the future together. 

This year, the two partners will jointly run a series comprising eight events between April and December. Revolving around the slogan of “Reclaim the Future”, topics on the latest technologies such as artificial intelligence, virtual reality and biotech will be presented and discussed. The set of events is targeted specifically at experts from various specializations, developers, visionaries and anyone else who has an interest in these issues. On April 28, 2020, the series will be launched at the FUTURE FORUM by BMW Welt with the hot topic of “Urban resilience: why we need resilient cities”. There will be another joint event at the 1E9 conference in Munich.

April 28, 2020 from 7 pm: Urban resilience: why we need resilient cities.

Even beyond the current pandemic, cities are facing a number of challenges. For example, they depend on energy and food from the region and around the world, often have an overburdened mobility concept, and social problems are particularly pronounced in urban areas. 

So how can cities respond to the current corona crisis and the many other challenges, especially climate change? Effective action only works when pulling together – through social cohesion, rapid and innovative adaptability of society and the widespread use of new technologies. This is how cities can truly become resilient. 

Several speakers will shed light on this topic in a variety of formats on April 28 as part of the digital launch event “Urban resilience: why we need resilient cities.”. First up will be Felix Beer from the IZT – Institute for Future Studies and Technology Assessment with a keynote presentation entitled “Resilience?!? Why it’s time for resilient cities.” This will be followed by a panel discussion which will look at the contribution that technology can make to the resilience of cities. Guests include Karim Tarraf from Hawa Dawa, David Balensiefen from gridX, Sebastian Hofer from the “freifahrt” podcast and Maximilian Lössl from Agrilution. The event will be concluded by a live interview with Sophie Jonke from the ReDi School on the subject of how Munich is pulling together digitally during this crisis. You can watch the whole event live and online.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
