GLOBAL CITIES, MIGRATION, AND BUSINESS
Demographers predict that the largest inflow of migration to cities around the world is yet to come and that by 2030, 60% of the world’s population will be living in urban areas. The opportunities of these movements include the exchange of capital, knowledge, and ideas. However, metropolitan hubs also frequently suffer from pollution, congestion, and security, as well as difficulty integrating new arrivals into local communities. Despite these realities, we lack knowledge on the intersection between migration trends, the growth of global cities, and the businesses that operate within them. This webinar will bring thought leaders from academia and policy to address this gap.
The author of the Wall Street Journal bestseller 2030: How Today’s Biggest Trends Will Collide and Reshape the Future of Everything, Mauro F. Guillèn (The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania) will open the discussion on the potential effects of the influx of migration to cities around the world. Next, Renate Meyer (Vienna University of Economics and Business) will address urban governance problems related to migration. Finally, Jason Gagnon (OECD) and Philip McCann (Alliance Manchester Business School) will share insights from their years of expertise in innovative policy solutions to these challenges.
