The World Bank

The World Bank has initiated a special study to develop a forward-looking action plan for transformation to fill the role of a “green bank”. This workshop will reflect the possible future direction for the World Bank in terms of sustainable, green economic development. Over the past 20 years the World Bank has emerged as a global leader and advisor to developing countries on sustainable development. Most recently, the Bank is exploring how it can assist countries to transform to a green economy where the growth of income and jobs, and the reduction of poverty and inequity, are driven by targeted environmental and social investments.

The objective of the workshop will be to gather a variety of inputs on the study questions from the perspectives of those working and making decisions in the world of 2025. We hope to really hear from the participants themselves about their own vision for their city and for cities of the future (hopes), what they expect of their city and cities of the future, and what actions they can take to achieve this vision - as well as what actions can (or can NOT) be taken by foreign development assistance organizations.

Target audience

University students, graduate school students and professionals under 35 years old (especially with strong interest in future city and urban development and environment policy)
