Watch the industry

The WAF Festival 2021 digital edition gives you access to live and on-demand content including the WAF and INSIDE programme, award winners’ announcements and over 500 on-demand category finalist presentations featuring some of the most innovative practices presenting to the WAF judging panel.


This year’s theme: “Resetting the City”

Ecological concerns regarding city planning, biodiversity and sustainability now meet the overall need to create healthier, safer surroundings more than ever. As concepts for sourcing clean energy, reducing pollution, and clean water supplies are now directly linked to the control of pandemics, they are becoming the center of urban planning strategies across the globe, and have also become the focus of this year’s festival.
