In this modern age of rapid growth where there is a lack of concern for the social impact organisations have, it's critical that we take a step back and examine how emerging cities may grow to become sustainable communities and not let conflicts go mismanaged.

Join our speakers to learn more about the unique challenges that emerging cities are facing and what we can do about it.
