Moreover, Ethicalperformance informs:
“The rapid growth of cities in the developing world, coupled with increasing rural to urban migration, has led to a boom in mega-cities. In 1990, there were ten mega-cities with 10 million inhabitants or more. In 2014, there are 28 mega-cities, home to a total 453 million people, according to the United Nations”.
The ICLEI, the Stockholm Resilience Centre, the World Business Council for Sustainable Development along with the Global Cities Business Alliance will provide inputs in the webinar so as to show “how cities can contribute to a low-carbon future”. Non-profits, policy, business and academic professionals are recommended for the webinar’s content, while the authorities from the “corporate responsibility and sustainability” sectors can equally profit from it.
