About the event
Businesses remain the engines of our global economy, when we consider how we will shape our inclusive cities of tomorrow, what is the role that business must play in that transition? As we work on shifting the way our future social and economic systems will operate, we must also consider the spaces we will work in, the way we will work, and how we will also finance that transition. Re-designing and co-creating our future cities will require all of us to form part of the discussion. This session will look to explore some of the obvious, and some of the less obvious barriers that face companies leading the upstream regenerative transition, in the places we call home.
