The opening of the academic year of AMS Institute promises to be an inspiring gathering where we delve into the theme of 'Reinventing Messiness' and explore the perspectives of urban innovators and experts on various challenges.

During this event, we will examine how the urban innovators of the future envision solutions to complex urban issues and compare their perspectives with those of established experts and urban rebels. By fostering dialogue and exchange, we aim to uncover new insights and promote mutual learning between these two dynamic groups.
