Sustainable Cities Conference Programme

Day 2 (6 June 2018)

Cities are where the vast majority of human beings live, work and breathe. Cities are where policy is formed; where finance houses determine the flows that contour the future; where commerce and industry provide ever evolving products, services and jobs; where scientific and technological research provides new dreams to dream. For the first time, as part of Sustainability Week 2018, the Sustainable Cities Conference unites these threads to provide a holistic vision of the urban future grounded on hard facts and economic data.
