What is the city of the future?
As Head of PwC’s Disruption practice, Leo Johnson explores the big ideas that will shape business and society in the years to come. He believes the future lies in developing cities for the people in it, and not the cars. What – in the tsunami of exponential technology – is real and what is hype? More importantly, what will become the impact on business?
By pinpointing the trends and laying out both risks and opportunities for business and finance, Leo makes sense of sustainability. Listening to Leo’s talk at Evolve Arena you will get insights into how you as a business leader can succeed in this rapidly changing world. How can we confront the system-wide automation and instead use technology to find human talents?
His presentation addresses questions regarding the future which no forward-looking company can afford to ignore. Can you?
Away from cities built around the car
By 2050, the world’s population is expected to reach 10 billion people. As a result, energy consumption will increase dramatically and 75% will live in cities. To cope with this realistic scenario, we must make enormous changes. Changes that make our cities carbon neutral, human-friendly and with consistently renewable energy solutions. Today, most cities are built around the car. However, it is necessary to turn the focus towards people and the environment in the cities instead. Many cities have started this transaction, Oslo among others, but with a development at this rapid pace it requires even greater focus and priority in all cities. To succeed, we must talk to each other!
In other words, an arena for more collaboration across industries must exist. An arena where professionals and decision makers come together to share thoughts, visions and new opportunities for the cities of our future. We give you Evolve Arena – Together for a smarter and better society.
