This session from the CRID Webinar Series will host the Policy & Strategy Advisor for urban development to The Executive Council (TEC), Government of Dubai, Dr. Sami Ibrahim who will talk about the future of cities. Global cities, smart cities, safe cities, future cities, sustainable cities; whatever the description is, one thing is for sure: city practitioners will always need to advocate for more livable cities. Throughout history, cities have faced multiple challenges and arguably succeeded overcoming them. Yet, today with the accelerating pace of these shocks, swift but precise actions are required. Considering these changes, what can one learn from previous experiences and current practices to better plan the future of our cities?
