Opening Panel: Seizing the Urban Moment

By 2050 — less than one generation from now — an additional 2.5 billion people will become city-dwellers. This enormous demographic shift to cities, this “urban moment”, is leading to a wave of investment in urban services and infrastructure on a scale we have never seen. Coupled with new technological possibilities, this presents us with an extraordinary opportunity to shape a better world for future generations. How can we seize the urban moment?

This session will take place in the Plenary Hall.

We offer simultaneous translation services (English-Bahasa Indonesia) for this session.

Moderated by Jason Pomeroy.
