>>THIRD EDITION – VIENNA INVITES<<
Do you want to shape the 21st century?
The Forward Exchange Program is a city exchange program between Vienna and Munich aiming to connect creative professionals. After a successful edition in both cities, it returns to Vienna this April. You will get the chance to work on new approaches with creatives, industry experts and specialists across borders. Together, you will create new products and solutions inspired by the host city.
This year’s focus will be on “Urban Food & Design” . Together we will explore innovative approaches to sustainable consumption.
How will sustainable food consumption look like in the future? What role does design play in it? How can we develop sustainable gastronomical concepts that promote community and make the city more livable, particularly when considering our current shortage in space? Which opportunities can digitalization provide for resource conservation and waste prevention?
The Forward Exchange Program is aimed at individuals and companies from the cities of Vienna and Munich who work in the fields of design, communication and multimedia, culinary arts and architecture and redefine their fields of work using digital media. Each year, up to 6 places are allocated per city.
The 3-day program includes several highlights for participants:
- A culinary meet-up on the topic of “Urban Food & Design”
