Vision and Pathways Related to Circular Cities
9 October @ 16:30 - 17:00 UTC+2
This event is to share the innovative pathways for the world’s cities which could lead the world towards an environmentally sustainable future. This guide is needed even more now with the world still suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic and many of the world’s biggest and most vibrant cities most affected by this terrible virus. COVID-19 sends us an important message: that a healthy planet is essential for us to maintain our own health. It’s time to take stock of how we damage nature now and how we can build back better so that nature is central to how cities function and thrive in the future.
This session will explore environmental solutions for cities including sustainable livelihoods, sustainable transport, urban biodiversity, food production, sustainable infrastructure, energy and resilience.
Speakers at this event come from the authors team on the GEO for Cities publication. They will discuss the ideas of GEO for Cities, innovation for livable and sustainable cities and transformative visions for healthy cities and people. The discussions with the delegates at the meeting would be focused on how cities will reach the SDG and New Urban Agenda targets, the visions and pathway related to circular cities.
