MIPIM 2019 makes room for the next generation with the very first ‘Young Leaders Summit’ debate on tomorrow’s cities

Paris, 18 February, 2019 – For its 30th edition, MIPIM is launching the Young Leaders Summit, innovatively staged as a major intergenerational debate on the future of cities and skills development. Through this event, focused entirely on upcoming generations, MIPIM plans to overview the next 30 years from the perspective of sustainable growth.

Organised by Reed MIDEM, a Reed Exhibitions subsidiary, MIPIM, the world’s leading property market, will be held in Cannes from 12 to 15 March, 2019.

The Young Leaders Summit will focus on two areas. Firstly on the results and analysis of a survey conducted by the make.org institute – “a general interest accelerator” – on tomorrow’s cities, followed by a presentation of a study carried out in partnership with the Fondation Palladio on the talents, profiles and skills needed to drive growth in the property industry.

The Make.org survey covers more than 20,000 French and international participants, men and women aged 16 to 34, including the MIPIM community. The key topics were mobility, ecology, urban agriculture, energy, and quality of life. The results of this survey will be released on 13 March and will help launch a lively and engaging intergenerational debate. Here is a preview of the themes chosen by the younger generation:

  • Promoting ecology on a daily basis and respecting the environment
  • Increasing mobility
  • Reinventing city-centre shopping
  • Making buildings more eco-friendly
Dateline 13 March to explore all the results and participate in developing the charter for the “city of tomorrow.”
  • 11 am: Which talents, profiles and skills are needed to help grow the property industry? What are the job and business opportunities? How can we develop the relevant property business skills? Active link to learn more about the speakers
  • Starting 4.30 pm: the “Young Leaders” working group on “design thinking” will present the results of its brainstorming session and then draw up the charter for tomorrow’s cities. This working session will be followed by a networking reception.
Contributors to this groundbreaking summit, drawn up in partnership with GECINA include Roman Kulik, Junior Real Estate Developer at Zoku, Axel Dauchez, Founding President of Make.org, and Alexandra Notay, Fund Director at PfP Capital.
