According to a recent UN study, in the next 40 years, 66% of the world's population will be living in urban areas. Which role will the 'city of the future' play? How will central governments and local administrations manage to interpret the needs and expectations of their territories? What kind of contribution will instead be offered by the private sector, in particular real estate developers and large investors, in promoting growth and social cohesion?
The conference, promoted in partnership with Euromilano, was part of the ISPI Desk Global Cities activities.
