First Learning Expedition of GBD Innovation Club
October 17-19, 2019, leaders of global business districts, business districts managing companies, and urban planning authorities will gather in Chicago, USA, for a fast-paced trip focused on Placemaking issues.
Three days of learning expedition will enable us to immerse in the latest urban trends, meet the key players of Downtown Chicago – from innovative startups to the local authorities – to learn from their practices, visit unique places of innovation, get in touch with the GBD Innovation Club network, and exchange and benefit from immersion in the ecosystem.
“To stay competitive in the face of a changing world, we need to learn. The most effective learning outcomes go beyond the purely cognitive, to the collaborative and experiential. That’s why we have created our first Learning Expedition. Based on an integrated experimental format, this expedition will use an exchange-centered focus as the primary source of inspiration and innovation,” – said Michael Edwards, President and CEO of Chicago Loop Alliance, Founding Member of GBD Innovation Club and host of the Learning Expedition.
We look forward to welcoming the first Learning Expedition participants in Chicago, to exchanging the experience, and to finding together new innovative solutions.
