Our Changing World — Urbanisation, Innovation and Civilisation

Under the programme title of ‘Our Changing World — Urbanisation, Innovation and Civilisation’, this Summit looks at the three driving forces of industrial transformation, urbanisation and digitalisation, and their profound impacts on the planet’s natural and built environment.

Key themes
