Around 1.5 million people are moving into the world’s cities every week. By 2050 there will be an additional 2 billion urban citizens mostly concentrated in developing countries. It places huge demands on infrastructure, housing, services, job creation, climate and environment. At the same time it presents opportunities for business, society and sustainable growth.

This multidisciplinary seminar sets out to explore the impact of rapid urbanisation, the critical lack of capacity amongst some of the most vulnerable countries and how the past may hold the key to unlocking sustainable development.

We have asked leading voices in the field to share their knowledge, research and pitch their views on the subject. This is the next event in the as part of the Kellogg Urban Knowledge Exchange series examining key urban issues.

Chair: Fiona Harvey, The Guardian

Refreshments will be served from 16:30, the seminar will begin at 17:00. You are welcome to stay for drinks after the event.
