IFHP, DAC, Gehl and Rambøll are among the BLOXHUB members that will participate in this year’s summit with the theme “Liveable & Sustainable Cities”

How do we make people part of the sustainability concept in cities? And how can the Nordic approach to urban systems bring more sustainable solutions to the world?

These are some of the challenges, BLOXHUB members will debate and contribute solutions to at the upcoming World Cities Summit in Singapore. The biennial summit is among the biggest for urban solutions with participation from government leaders and industry experts from all over the world.

Measuring social sustainability

The overall theme for the 2018 summit is how cities can be more liveable and resilient through better governance and planning, technology and social innovations. BLOXHUB member IFHP (International Federation for Housing and Planning) is a strategic partner for the summit and will launch their new Social Cities Index, a tool for measuring inclusivity in cities.

The tool will be introduced at the event, “ Show Me the Numbers: IFHP Social Cities” on July 10. Participants will discuss cross-sectorial and interdisciplinary cooperation between cities and the private sector as well as civil society in tackling issues of social sustainability.

Speakers include Dr Hee Limin, Centre for Liveable Cities; Helle Søholt, CEO Gehl Architects; Bo Wesley, Novo Nordisk: Cities Changing Diabetes; Trine Stausgaard Munk, Ramboll and Deputy Mayor Ms. Yuri Arakida, City of Yokohama.

Nordic Urban Systems workshop

Danish Architecture Center has joined forces with the other Nordic countries to promote regional and global collaboration in urban sustainability. In the workshop, “Urban Systems for a Sustainable Future – the Nordic Way”, participants will outline and discuss their dream scenarios for future cities and how to initiate the necessary public-private partnerships to make the scenarios a reality.

Speakers include: Hanne Christensen, Managing Director Ramboll Water, Flemming Borreskov, President IFHP Larry Ng Lye Hock, Managing Director of World Cities Summit and representatives from the Norwegian Embassy

The workshop also takes place July 10. More info and registration here

    I’m the co-founder of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently trying to expand my wholesale side of company. I really hope that someone at targetdomain give me some advice 🙂 I considered that the most suitable way to accomplish this would be to talk to vape companies and cbd stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a qualified web-site where I can get Vape Shop B2B Data I am already reviewing creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Not exactly sure which one would be the very best solution and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
