Cities have great advantages. They provide good jobs and are the most efficient form for delivery of services such as waste disposal, power, education, fire protection, and transportation, when compared with rural areas. City dwellers also use less energy than their counterparts in the countryside. Many experts envision that cities of the future will utilize more sustainable water, waste, energy, and transportation infrastructures.

But, what will drive the innovation needed to create these cities? And, what role will government, industry, and NGOs play in bringing about this change? Certainly not immune to partisan politics, cities have nonetheless been the proving ground for sustainable development, as these expert panelists are prepared to testify while debating the best policies.

Panelists:

Lynn Scarlett, Former Deputy Secretary of the Interior (Moderator)

Shlomo (Solly) Angel, Adjunct Professor of Urban Planning, New York University

Colin Harrison, Distinguished Engineer, Enterprise Initiatives, IBM

Caswell Holloway, Deputy Mayor, New York City

Julia Parzen, Coordinator, Urban Sustainability Directors Network

Alison Taylor, Vice President, Sustainability, Siemens

Terry Yosie, President, World Environment Center
