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
