This conversation will take us on a journey throughout major hubs in the world from Sao Paulo to Nairobi, through Casablanca, Beirut and Kigali. We will collectively question the challenges for cities still facing strong rural exodus, migration flows and demographic transition, therefore in huge and fast paced transformation, as well as explore the role of increased collaboration of politics with activists and changemakers collaborating in these countries.
