Businesses are largely based in urban centers, and of course they cannot function without energy, water, and physical infrastructure. At a time when businesses and government are struggling with a tough economy, population growth is aggravating demands on aging infrastructure. Cities are also facing the increasingly urgent challenge of meeting sustainability goals in their uses of energy, water, and other resources.

More people now live in urban areas than rural areas, and the world’s population, now 6.8 billion people, is projected to exceed 9 billion people by mid-century, with vast, sprawling, swollen megacities absorbing much growth and increasingly burdened by it.

How will future cities function? How will future businesses function? How might they žourish, sustainably?

Partnerships and collaborations among business, government, nonproŸt organizations, citizens, and technology experts will signiŸcantly shape the answers to these questions. On November 6, urban experts will convene at Baruch College to discuss them, and how they are envisioning the future. Their focus will be an in-depth examination of the vital subjects of water and power, and a remarkable building that embodies a historic shift toward tomorrow’s sustainable cities.
