Balancing tech regulation

Technology is a central enabler, but the delicate balance between over-regulation and under-regulation is crucial to unleashing its full potential.

Go beyond plans

Act swiftly on climate change—focus on impactful actions, not just planning.

Innovation through collaboration

Unprecedented innovation demands collaboration—public and private sectors must unite. It's about solutions that address vulnerability and social injustice, and foster resilient, equitable cities.
