The world around us is changing, with the effect of climate change increasingly apparent. Our cities are a key contributor to climate change, but they are also an integral part of the solution. Populations within cities are growing at an alarming rate, with urban growth driving environmental change, but inequalities remain. Infrastructure needs to be climate ready, looking at the adaptation of buildings already in existence and resilience in the built environment. This oncoming age of climate breakdown alongside rapid urbanisation, means urban transformation is essential if cities are to address these challenges ahead and meet global climate and development goals.
Urban Evolution: Our Future Cities will shine a light on the organisations leading the way when it comes to:
- Creating more resilient, affordable and accessible cities
- The innovative solutions to cut carbon emissions
- Initiatives to promote good mental, physical and social health
There are commercial opportunities for leading organisations to be featured in the programme and spearhead their own news item. If your organisation wants to share what you stand for and be part of this important conversation about the future of our cities, please contact our ITN Business Programming Directors, Jeff Blackmore or Tamsin Luck.
