Financing and designing net zero cities

Cities are responsible for 70% of global carbon emissions, so net zero carbon cities are critical to everyone’s future. We need to accelerate the decarbonisation of our cities -— halving emissions by 2030. But what does this look like and how do we get there? All of our urban systems, from energy networks to transport to buildings, will have to be transformed. This session will explore how the role of design, data, AI and other advanced digital technologies can help build next generation, net zero carbon cities, but will also unpack the issues of control, coordination and engagement that come with it.
