The Rise of the City c Alys Jones
Fri 09 November 2018,

City and metro mayors are increasingly high-profile and urbanisation is rising. By 2050 the majority of citizens will live in the world’s cities. Is the city – and city-region – replacing the nation as the most important economic entity? What does this mean for planning and delivering the future economy?

The panel, chaired by Margaret Heffernan, includes Andrew Carter (Centre for Cities), Diane Coyle (University of Cambridge), Patricia Greer (West of England Combined Authority) and Max Nathan (University of Birmingham).

Bristol Festival of Economics is presented in association with

triodos-bank
