The Nature of City Festival (TNOC) is an annual experiment in multidisciplinary collaboration designed to go beyond borders to radically imagine our cities of the future. The Nature of Cities’ mission is to curate debates and dialogues about urbanism through transdisciplinary collaboration and exchanges of experience and knowledge. A virtual festival that spans 3 full days with programming across all regional time zones and is available in multiple languages.
Moreover, TNOC Festival’s main philosophy is to promote inclusiveness and lower barriers to participation by striving for worldwide cities that are livable, resilient, sustainable, and just. It focuses on the creation of trans-disciplinary, publicly available, and widely disseminated programs mixing the arts, science, urban practice fields, and performance, in order to bring urban thought leaders and changemakers together to build better cities.
The Nature of Cities Festival will engage ALDA as a 2022 edition partner, based on a synergy born in 2021 during the last edition!
The Festival, which was developed by the Nature of Cities Organization in collaboration with a wide variety of global stakeholders, is taking place on March 29-31 2022, and it will engage ALDA as a 2022 edition Partner. A synergy born in 2021 during the last edition of the TNOC Festival, through the involvement of the LIFE METRO Adapt project as one of the main co-organizers, as it brought to the Festival a wide variety of activities and sessions, disseminating the project results and knowledge generated to the broader public.
We look forward to participating as partners! In the meanwhile, you can also help The Nature Of City build cities that are better for nature and people by submitting proposals of all kinds, from workshops and presentations to art performances, field trips, and documentaries.
The primary phase for session submissions is closing on the 30th of November 2021 at Midnight EST. Submissions after this date will only be considered on a “space available” basis. The results will be announced in early December while the full Festival schedule will be announced in January 2022.
