International Forum on Sustainable Cities: Is Global Chaos The Future?

The GW Center on Sustainable Growth

The discussion will focus on the future of cities globally. A number of issues will be addressed:

As cities and metropolitan areas increase in size and importance, what role will they play – and what is at stake?

As the Rio +10 Sustainability Summit in South Africa approaches, how can we make cities more sustainable?

What can we learn -- successes and failures -- from different places around the world?

The Forum will feature:

Governor Jaime Lerner of Curitiba, Brazil

Minister Sankie Dolly Mthembi-Mahanyele, South Africa's Minister of Housing

Mr. Robert D. Kaplan, American foreign correspondent and author
