Launched in celebration of Swissnex’s 20th year anniversary in San Francisco, Metropolis – Sustainable Futures Under Construction explores and shapes the future of cities, focusing on food, energy, and the physical and digital environments.

Globally, cities house half of the world’s population, consume 75% of energy, and generate 75% of CO2 emissions. Addressing food security, energy consumption, and sustainable infrastructure design is vital for resilient cities.

Metropolis creates a space for visionary ideas to emerge by connecting dreamers and doers from both Switzerland and the Bay Area to co-create practical solutions for the future’s most pressing issues.
