Breakthrough Approaches for Sustainable Cities

The long-term health of cities matters – we must work together for a lasting future for our urban centers.

More and more of the world’s population is moving to cities.

According to the UN, by 2050 nearly two-thirds of the global population will live in cities, and urban populations will increase by 2 billion people.

While this mass migration will bring new, exciting opportunities for city residents, it also brings daunting challenges to urban environments and the businesses operating there.
