Making cities work sustainably will become increasingly important in our fast-urbanising world, and ‘alpha’ cities - such as London and Hong Kong, that disproportionately exert influence on global affairs - have a critical role to play.
The Natural History Museum is guided by a vision for a future where both people and planet thrive. This panel session brings leading commentators from across the world to ignite curiosity and foster informed debate on the topic of cities and sustainability.
