How do cities around the world adapt and prepare for future shocks and challenges? And how can we help city makers and leaders future-proof their decisions?
As part of the first phase of our new Future of Cities programme, we are taking a virtual trip to Sydney, Australia, to see how the city is prioritising resilience in both policies and projects, to make a city that works for all.
