Urban Living - City of the Future
According to the United Nations, nearly 70 percent of all people are expected to be living in metropolises and megacities by 2050. This poses new challenges for living and mobility concepts, as well as food supplies and health services provision. Functional apparel, with smart functions for example, could also play an even more important role in people’s everyday lives in the future.In collaboration with “Creative #olland“, the Dutch creative industries, Techtextil is dedicating an exhibition space to life in the city of the future with the 'Urban Living – City of the Future' special event. The Techtextil and Texprocess exhibition area will be presenting examples of textile applications. In addition, an accompanying complementary programme will offer insights into the industry.
