How governments, academia and firms can spur sustainable cities

Cities are more economically active and have a lower than average environmental footprint, but they struggle with climate change, population changes, congestion and resource pressure. How can disparate groups, including business, city governments and academia, work together to enable the development of products and services for the cities of the future? This keynote panel discussion from Convergence Paris will explore the topic with Peter Madden CEO of Future Cities Catapult, Sterling Hughes, head of advanced technology at Silver Spring Networks, and Geoff Kendall, development director of SustainAbility.
