Why Living In A City Is The Most Sustainable Move You Could Make

With the climate crisis evolving at an alarming rate, major cities are being forced to come to terms with the fact that they face potential extinction unless urgent action is taken.

Moderated by The Guardian, this panel brought together industry leaders in a discussion to reimagine smart, resilient and sustainable cities of tomorrow.
