About Urban Talks

At Urban Talks, we bring smart and sustainable solutions for cities.

We educate. We connect. We inspire.

Urban Talks were created by UrbanizeHub out of a simple need of connecting innovators, leaders, changemakers and companies who share the same values and dream of a better world. Through their Urban Talks, they inspire us to get involved in projects that shape the future of our cities.

The concrete ideas will be collected and selected in the pre-event phase through the website www.civicDev.ro
