Modern humans are an urban species and our future hinges on how we transform these urban environments to align with climate-positive action. Cities of the future must preserve fragile biodiversity while simultaneously retaining the cultural integrity of diverse communities. With technology advancing in leaps and bounds, how do we ensure change is driven by stakeholders rooted in those changing communities? What particular challenges threaten the implementation of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal on sustainable cities in the global South? How can cities implement both the C40 priorities of a ‘Green and Just Recovery’ and a ‘Green New Deal’? Join visionary speakers to discuss the future of these urban cornerstones of human civilisation, as they undergo a new wave of urbanisation at an unprecedented scale and speed.
