Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The Exchange is a collaboration space hosted in partnership with Convenors.org for Unlikely Allies attendees and thought leaders on the future of cities. Do you have a burning idea, conversation or skill you want to share? Bring it to The Exchange.

How it works: 

During the afternoon of July 6th, Conveners.org will host The Exchange, an unconference space aimed at taking the conversations and the collaborations deeper that have started during day one of the festival. The Exchange will feature many of the speakers and thought leaders from the program as well as UA participants who will propose and host sessions on topics they also feel are critical to the Future of Cities. Space to propose a session is open to all participants however there are a limited number of slots so we ask all UA festival pass holders and speakers to register their session not later than the morning of the 6th (by the end of breakfast). Interested to host a session? Read more….

Exchange session formats that you can propose to host: 

  1. General Discussion? Explore or get feedback on an idea.
  2. Continuing Conversations? Pick up a thread from the day before.
  3. Skills Offer? Share an expert skill.



How to propose a session?

Upon registration each participant will receive their festival badge along with an A5 card for The Exchange. On this card they can identify the topic, session type, and session host. The card prompts participant to return session topics to the main area by 11 AM on July 6th 2016.
