Event Summary:

FLN Infrastructure Fundamentals Webinar | 10 Years of FLN, What do the Next 10 to 20 Years Look Like? 

No one could have predicted the past year, what unexpected lessons have we learned from the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on the built environment? What will remain from the COVID changes and what do you hope will remain? Reflecting on the past 10 years since the FLN was created Dr Chris Luebkeman, leader of the Strategic Foresight Hub in the Office of the President at ETH Zurich, will guide us on a journey to 2040 and what the future for us all may look like.


Speaker bio:

Chris Luebkeman’s career to date has spanned professions and geographies. His  multidisciplinary education (geology, civil engineering, structural engineering, entrepreneurship and a Doctorate in Architecture) was encouraged by his Mid-Western family of educators. His journey included Vanderbilt, Cornell and the ETH in Zurich. He became an academic gypsy teaching courses on Design and on Technology at the University of Oregon, the Chinese University of Hong Kong and at MIT. He joined Arup in London to lead the Research and Development group in 1999 and became a corporate intrapreneur by founding the Foresight, Innovation and Incubation teams.  He established the Drivers of Change program and is proud to have been accused by the Guardian to have a mindset “in league with the future”. He is deeply passionate about curating constructive dialogue, insatiably curious, relished the opportunity to discover the opportunities which will be created by change and, perhaps most importantly, to evolve positive solutions to the profound challenges we face today. For twenty years he travelled the globe sharing his observations and insights by leading projects focused on the future for Arup, Arup’s clients and for many of the world’s leading institutions. For example, he has spoken at TED, hosted conversations at, and for, WEF and keynoted dozens of conferences around the world.  He is a member of the nominating committee for the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew World City Prize, the external advisory Board of the URA and of Brain Trust of the Climate Music Project. He returned to the ETH in Zurich in 2020 as a strategic advisor to the President and Executive Board.
