Sustainability Through The World's Cities on June 5, 10am EDT


Much of the world's efforts toward sustainability and sustainable development is assumed by nation-states. The United Nations and the Sustainable Development Goals, the Paris Climate Accord - countries dominate the debate. However when taking a systems approach to global sustainability the critical nature of cities (urban agglomerations) quickly emerges. This talk explores how an energy and material flows analysis - from the perspective of cities - can facilitate greater sustainable development and from that global sustainability.

To be presented by Prof. Daniel Hoornweg on June 5th, 10 am EDT
