Urbanisation Forum 2018: Connectivity
15 November 18:00 - 21:00
Venue: Google UK, Six Pancras Square, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AG

BOOKING CLOSED

For the sixth year running the SCC is hosting an event within the realms of urbanisation. This year’s theme is Connectivity. With insights from Google and other experts on the matter, we will explore questions such as linking urbanisation with the latest innovations and technology. 

More than half of the world's population are living in urban areas and cities are set to be the future global economic engines. As the urban areas are rapidly expanding, there are several crucial challenges that must be addressed, creating a huge demand for infrastructure that will connect the city and make it more inclusive and sustainable. This Forum aims to discuss these issues and explore the challenges of today as well as the challenges of the future.
