    Regenerative Cities: DIF Live Show

    Regenerative Cities: DIF Live Show

    Continuing population growth and urbanisation are projected to add 2.5 billion people to the world’s urban population by 2050. This leaves two pressing questions: how will they live, and where will they live?

    In this recorded event for DIF 2016, we were joined by two guests with plenty of experience in dealing with some of the challenges posed by cities: Melanie Nutter and Shyaam Ramkumar. Melanie is the former Director of San Francisco Department of the Environment, while Shyaam is part of a team at Circle Economy who investigated how the city of Amsterdam could be transformed by taking inspiration from the circular economy.

    Watch this show to hear how our experts believe we can rise to meet the urban challenges of today and tomorrow.
