Green and Livable Cities
Green and Liveable Cities: How can innovative urban development unlock sustainable economic recovery?
Urbanisation is a big challenge in Africa, but a people-centred and climate-proof approach can turn this into an opportunity. Experiences from Nordic cities and businesses show that such a model can bring economic growth, jobs for youth, services and liveable neighbourhoods. The talk will bring together perspectives from Iceland, Kenya and Latin America.
