In 2008, for the first time, a majority of the earth's population was residing in cities. This urban migration coupled with the developing world becoming more "developed" suggests great challenges as well as great opportunties for a sustainable futre. Join us for a moderated panel discussion that explores how we can best meet our present and future needs.
The panel will be moderated by Warren Karlenzig. Additional panelists TBD.
