Cities for the Future: Where Life Meets Design

7:30 p.m. | Monday, June 3, 2019

Cities around the world are bracing for a growth spurt. With over half of the global population living in urban centers, and another 2.5 billion expected to join them by 2050, it’s time to rethink the traditional car-centric cityscape. But what goes into designing a sustainable city that can withstand the challenges of cars, climate change and rapid population growth? Join us for a conversation with renowned architect and urban planner Jan Gehl on building sustainable cities that make public life healthier, more inclusive and more dynamic. Co-presented by Gehl Studio and Climate One.
