TV Studio 3
Lab debate

12:00 to 12:45

Half of humanity are living in towns and cities and this dynamic is increasing dramatically around the World.
Leaders and the International Community have agreed the 2030 should be the year to achieve a sustainable development that leaves no one, no place behind, and that we need to engage for a Decade of Action starting 2020.
During the WUF) 10, actors and stakeholders engaged in the dynamic of sustainable cities have presented, showed cases and shared innovative policies,  strategies, programs and projects.
In a world marked by multidimensional challenges, by the scarcity of resources and by the lack of skills, we need to support each other, to join our efforts and to cooperate so as not to reinvent the wheel. Cities, particularly in developing countries, need to learn from other cities, from other actors and stakeholders who have already implemented, experienced and successfully implemented innovative initiatives to make cities sustainable.
