About the Event: 

For the first time ever, more than half of the world's population lives in urban centers. Asia in particular has seen rapid urbanization and it can be said that we are now living in the age of cities. Vancouver, with its distinct Pacific Rim characteristics, consistently ranks as one of the most livable places in the world. Under its mayor Gregor Robertson, it has set an ambitious goal to become the Greenest City in the world by 2020 and the measurable progress being made towards this is an example of how daunting global challenges are increasingly being tackled at the local level. What lessons can other cities learn from Vancouver and what can Vancouver learn from Asia's approach to urbanization?
