    In this metropolitan century, cities are crucial for a successful transformation toward a sustainable future. This is the starting point of the new reports by the German Advisory Council on Global Change (WBGU) and the World Resources Institute (WRI). Through a cross-sectoral lens, WBGU’s state-of-the-art analysis emphasizes the transformative power of cities and the importance of urban governance and citizen engagement. While WBGU’s work provides an overarching framework and necessities for the city of the future, WRI’s presentation will draw from the World Resources Report (WRR) to dive deep into the issues of accessibility and sustainable mobility. The WRR will focus on strategies and practical solutions for enabling transformative change.
