Forum on Urban Sustainability

I gave a keynote address, The New Imperative: Green Cities for an Urban World, at the French Embassy in Washington DC on 6 March 2015. The event was a forum  that brought together mayors from the US and France in a two day event to kick-start long-term and formal cooperation among officials and practitioners concerned with sustainable urban development in France and the United States. I learned a lot from  a great range of very interesting speakers from central and city governments, private companies and NGOs in France, USA and from around the world.  The forum is a lead up to the participation of cities in the December 2015 Paris Climate Conference.
