How do we make our cities ethical?

Join us for a global webinar with urbanisation experts in Europe, the UK and Australia on how we can make our cities ethical

As cities around world transition to a low carbon future, how do we ensure our places and communities remain fair for all?​

It’s often the most vulnerable who are impacted by the effects of climate change as well as the sometimes negative and unintended consequences of decarbonisation – from economic inequality through to social exclusion. ​

We’re seeing COVID-19 recovery responses call for the world to come out of the pandemic in a green and clean way. ​

But how do we ensure that the people who will benefit from this investment are those who most need it? ​

This global webinar will cover how cities can approach a decarbonised future in an ethically informed way, with a focus on:​

  • citizen-led approaches for positive transformative change
  • inclusive urbanism planning, policy and decision-making.
