CAPITALIZING ON THE MODERN ERA OF URBANIZATION

11:00-12:30 Pavilion G, Conference Hall G5
While the global population is expected to increase by 2.5 billion people, the percentage of that population residing in urban areas will grow from 54% to 66% by 2050. This massive shift towards urbanization creates huge challenges for policymakers and municipal authorities, and rich opportunities for companies and entrepreneurs offering solutions to urban management problems. Particularly as cities and economies compete for skilled talent, creating a comfortable urban environment is now a national strategic priority. What are some of the key smart city innovations and solutions that can have an impact on urban management and how should boardrooms respond to these massive demographic trends? How can national identity be maintained while seeking to concentrate human and technological potential in urban areas at a time of economic globalization? How can we make all cities in the country, regardless of their size, more comfortable and attractive for living?

Highlights

In the coming decades, the cities of the world will compete not only for technology, but primarily for human assets.

Mikhail Men
Minister of Construction, Housing, and Utilities of the Russian Federation

Only developers that focus on development of the urban environment and public space will be successful.

Mikhail Men
Minister of Construction, Housing, and Utilities of the Russian Federation

We live in 21st century and we must not just think of cities in physical terms, we also need to think of cities in the form of data and to look at it through the digital lens.

Mark Spelman
Member of the Board, Future Cities Catapult

The reason why most cities have problems is the lack of integrated planning. In the new world cities will have planning, design methodologies, data and impact assessments, in other words, the ability to look forward through the data modelling.

Mark Spelman
Member of the Board, Future Cities Catapult

The modern ‘smart’ city isn’t just about improving the quality of life, but also about a huge potential for business development – both small and medium-sized.

Sergey Emdin
Chief Executive Officer, Tele2

Our main task for today is to make sure that the creative class that is emerging in our cities remains there.

Andrey Chibis
Deputy Minister of Construction, Housing, and Utilities of the Russian Federation

Overall, we are seeing an increase of urbanization across the world, and this urbanization shows that we are moving in cities where people not only live as individuals but also live in an eco-system of mobility and infrastructure that we need to move ahead.

Nikolaus Lang
Senior Partner, Managing Director, The Boston Consulting Group

When urbanizing a territory, a city cannot be made comfortable immediately for everyone living there – but you can find people who would relay your ideas.
