About this event

Vlerick Alumni & The Progress Coins Club: Requisite adaptability for life in the future city: shopping, learning, mobility, socializing... a panel discussion moderated by Mr. Rudi Lepomme

Check the full programme of the Progress Coins Club Activities for 2021-2022 here!

Multiple key drivers will have a big impact on how we will lead our lives in the coming decades. Drivers - such as digitalization, sustainability of the ecological niches, tempering climate change, etc. - are forcing us to adapt how we learn and work (remotely), find shelter in cities, be mobile locally and long-distance, do our shopping, socialize with people, go on holidays and find our happiness.

In this panel discussion, the experts will focus on some of the key changes that we will all have to adapt to. Practical examples for cities such as Ghent, Brussels, Antwerp will be used to illustrate the theoretical concepts.

Nicolas Bearelle: Revive is actually a childhood dream come true. Ever since my childhood, I have been drawing my dream houses and I wanted to become an architect (after my studies as a pilot and veterinarian, of course). But in addition to creating a brighter future, I also wanted to realize various things and do business. That came gradually, but it became an irresistible urge. The marriage between the artistic, offering societal added value, and adhering to economic reality is the essence of Revive.
