EXECUTIVE BRIEF

Building sustainable Future Capitals brings with it a huge responsibility for the environment. As such, it has become vital to work toward creating a healthy future for succeeding generations that is bound with the natural systems of the planet; its biodiversity and its ecological integrity. This session will debate the vision of sustainable Future Capitals when waste is efficiently managed; when the needless destruction of forests and diverse species has ceased; when there are many more parks, gardens and fountains; when new jobs have been created to produce goods and services by using natural resources innovatively and efficiently; and when global policies promote community living and end environmental threats to future generations. Join environmental leaders as they take a closer look at the priorities that will generate a better understanding of how government, business and individuals can partner to change the way we design, build, manage, live and work.
 

This session examines six critical priorities for 2009-2015:
On The Urban Future  Connected Communities: How to make technology work for living?
On Accountability Culture of Sustainable Living: Why YOU matters most? 
On Architecture Greening the Gray: How to co-exist in harmony with nature? 
On Human Energy The Energy Revolution: Why must the best of human energy innovate? 
On Slim Capitals  Slim Capitals 2015: How to make Ecotopia a reality?
On Water Security  Water Alert: How to avoid running dry?
