This dialogue session will explore how independent journalism can help cities and their citizens learn from one another and innovate rapidly, and how this can strengthen the push toward sustainable urbanization. The session will feature presentations and interactive conversation between members of the Habitat III Journalism Project, including Citiscope, Guardian Cities, Future Earth and the International Council for Science. The session will also see the launch of The Anthropocene magazine, whose first issue will focus on cities and urban solutions.
