Gascia Ouzounian will speak at the 'Flourishing Cities' conference hosted by the University of Oxford's Blavatnik School of Government. Please find more details below via the conference Website.

Over 70% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050. This rapid urbanization presents both an extraordinary challenge and a remarkable opportunity to improve welfare, drive sustainability, promote inclusive growth and revolutionize the very notion of government. The conference will generate discussions that take on the biggest and most important of these challenges.

“Flourishing cities” will explore big new ideas and showcase examples of innovative practice in government and public policy around the world. It will seek new ways to tackle the impacts of rapid urbanisation across the world and address the challenges of meeting the needs and aspirations of citizens.
