Ideasforward wants to give young creative people from around the world the opportunity to express their views on the future of societies through their innovative and visionary proposals. We are an experimental platform seeking progressive ideas that reflect on emerging themes. The eco design, sustainable architecture, new materials, concepts and technologies are compelling issues in the societies of the future and the involvement of the whole community is imperative. In an era of globalization where communication was dominated by the technological revolution, there is the need to rethink the cities and how Man relates in a global World as well as rethink the economic, social and cultural patterns of contemporary societies.
The young and creative thinkers are a precious commodity that we value very much and we want to give voice to their ideas here because we believe in their value and their ideas and that we can change the world with them.

In recent years we have seen huge climate change on our planet. These changes are due primarily to global warming which leads to the melting of glaciers and consequently to increased levels of the oceans. Much has been said, but little has been done. In 2005 the Kyoto Protocol, the Bali Conference in 2007, in 2009 the Copenhagen Conference – COP-15, however nothing seems to change! In 2013, NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) released a report which shows that the planet has reached the highest concentration of carbon dioxide in history. We have 24H to act!
