Tonight | City ambition: Why we need it, what it looks like, how we get there
Public lecture hosted by LSE Cities
The constraints and demands under which cities operate are continually changing. James Anderson, who leads the Government Innovation programs at Bloomberg Philanthropies, will share his experience helping city leaders solve their most vexing challenges through innovation, data and evidence, and collaboration.
10 April | Too Big: Rebuild by Design’s Transformative Response to Climate Change
Book launch hosted by LSE Cities
Too Big, authored by Henk Ovink and Jelte Boeijenga, tells the inside story of the American federal response in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The late 2012 storm that ravaged the New York-New Jersey region revealed the true physical and social vulnerabilities that all coastal cities face. A panel discussing resilience will follow with Jo da Silva who leads Arup International Development.
16 April | Democratic lives in the 21st century
Panel discussion hosted by Commonwealth Local Government ForumInternational IDEA and LSE Cities
Globalisation, geo-political power shifts, the changing role and structure of governments and institutions, the rise of populism and new technologies that mediate the political process have all contributed to anxieties around how cities and nations are governed. This panel will examine what impacts governance innovations have on the way our societies are governed and explores ways to ensure key democratic value systems are protected.
17 April | Transforming Nigeria’s urban agenda
Public lecture hosted by Firoz Lalji Centre for Africa and LSE Cities
Babatunde Fashola is Nigeria’s Federal Minister of Power, Works and Housing. Formerly, as the Lagos State Governor, his vision was to transform Africa’s largest city into a business-friendly hub through revenue collection reform, taming lawlessness, building roads and fast-tracking mega projects like Eko Atlantic City, which was also expected to provide homes for the rapidly growing urban population. This talk will explore the challenges and opportunities of responding to these needs from his new role in the Federal Capital Abuja.
