Pop'Sciences Forum: the city of the future belongs to its citizens!

From November 27, 2018 to December 5, 2018

In the upcoming Pop’Sciences Forum, the Université de Lyon and its partners are exploring the new transformations within the city and for its citizens that are being brought about by digital technology.

Through the perspectives of experts in urban studies, sociology, architecture, computer science and political sciences, the Pop’Sciences Forum encourages participants to discover, debate and imagine the role citizens can play in the city of the future. Bringing together local inhabitants, workers, researchers, developers, elected officials and artists, the Université de Lyon is organizing four days of debates designed to be temporary construction sites for thinking together and producing knowledge.

Scheduled events: meetings, radio, theater, exhibits, walks, workshops, debates, etc. The entire event is free and open to everyone.
