Alliances for Cities in Transition

Transition Cities - oct 19 2017 - title

HEC Paris' Society & Organizations (SnO) Center and HEC Alumni are pleased to announce the theme for their annual conference: Alliances for Cities in Transition.
Cities are faced with an urgent, massive and wicked  challenge: achieve carbon neutrality while ensuring the inclusion and empowerment of all their citizens. To wicked challenges, complex solutions: transitioning to new city models will not be achieved without the persistent and convergent mobilization of all actors: citizens and the civil society, public and private sectors, investors, researchers...

HEC Paris sheds light on multi-actor initiatives that aim to build the sustainable, inclusive and resilient cities of tomorrow.

Join us on October 19th to exchange on the following topics:

  • What is our shared vision for future cities?
  • How to catalyze multi-stakeholder collaboration for impact? Which engagement and governance models?
  • Which business models and funding tools will do transition ?
  • … And what about HEC Paris’ territorial footprint?
