Show notes

Cities are commonly perceived as separate from natural systems; great expanses of cement and concrete. However, the latest estimates show we can no longer live in disconnect, with 44% of global GDP in cities at risk of disruption from biodiversity loss. How can we bring nature back into our cities to secure a more livable and resilient future for all? The World Economic Forum has recently launched the BiodiverCities by 2030 initiative to push forward an urban development model in harmony with nature. Over the next two weeks, you'll hear from Cristina Gomez Garcia Reyes, the World Economic Forum's Lead of the Urban Nature Agenda, and George Benson, Co-Founder of the Climate Displacement Planning Initiative, on the reports significance, key takeaways, and concrete steps for urban leaders and decision makers.
