City-zen Fuckup Night: let’s talk about failure!

The Smart City project City-zen tests various technological innovations within the urban context of Amsterdam and Grenoble.
These innovations at district level as well as at building level contribute to the 20-20-20 objectives of both cities.

Super! But…did everything go smoothly? You don’t learn much from success stories.
Therefore, on 2nd of April, during City-zen Days in Amsterdam, several speakers will highlight their setbacks in integrating sustainable solutions in their city and how to overcome them.

Be part of this experience with a snack and a drink and get inspired to get to work yourself, despite setbacks!


What is Fuckup Nights?

Fuckup Nights is a global movement and event series that shares stories of professional failure. Each month, in events across the globe, we get three to four people to get up in front of a room full of strangers to share their own professional fuckup. The stories of the business that crashes and burns, the partnership deal that goes sour, the product that has to be recalled, we tell them all.
