Economy, planet, markets and you
A recent UN report expects 68% of the world population to live in cities by 2050, compared to about 55% today. The uncomfortable truth behind that is that cities are responsible for the majority of greenhouse gas emissions, waste and pollution.
In this new episode of 2050 Investors, Kokou Agbo-Bloua explores the concept of smart cities and investigates whether they are simply the result of an intelligent designer or if there are more complex evolutionary forces at play?
He is joined by the mayor of one the world’s most celebrated smart cities, Helsinki’s Mayor Juhana Vartiainen, to discuss the future of urbanisation and how smart cities rise to the challenges of sustainability, the energy transition and simply, strive to make life better for their citizens.
“2050 Investors” offers an investigation into tomorrow’s economic and market mega-trends, ahead of 2050’s global sustainability targets.
