Themes and Subthemes
Based on four trends it seems timely to reconsider the Entrepreneurial City from a new perspective:
(1) A new scale of migration;
(2) The disruption of long established businesses and industries through new tech giants;
(3) The change from long-term employment to temporary jobs and self-employment;
(4) The environmental challenges of climate change demand us to fundamentally reconsider how we work and live.
