    THE MAYORS’ PANEL: HOW DO WE REINVENT OUR CITIES FOR THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?

    THE MAYORS’ PANEL: HOW DO WE REINVENT OUR CITIES FOR THE THIRD INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION?
    The city of 2025 could be crisis-ridden if the world doesn’t create more sustainable models of urban development. Research says that our cities will continue to expand and increase in population, while their populations will bring rising consumption and emissions. Alongside these huge challenges, there are also opportunities for businesses: electric vehicles, new low-carbon means of cooling, and energy efficient buildings. We ask a group of mayors to outline an urban planning strategy for 2025.

    Moderated by Bill Keller, Op-Ed columnist, The New York Times

    Confirmed panelists:
    Jaime Lerner, former mayor of Curitiba, Brazil
    Stephanie Miner, mayor of Syracuse
    Enrique Peñalosa, former mayor of Bogotá, Colombia
    Greg Stanton, mayor of Phoenix
