21st Century Challenges

Informed discussion from the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG)

Our 21st Century Challenges programme engages people with key social, environmental and economic challenges. It recognises that geography is at the heart of many of these challenges and is integral to tackling them. 

Through a series of parallel events created for public and policy-making audiences, we'll examine issues within the same broad topic but tailored to meet the needs of these different groups. Public panel discussions are designed to engage and inspire wide ranging audiences, whilst Policy Forum discussions delve a little deeper in order to promote knowledge exchange between the geographical community, practitioners, policy-makers and other interested parties. 

To complement the discussions, the 21st Century Challenges website and dedicated social media channels will provide up-to-date and accessible information and supporting material.

Events

London: too big to succeed?

  • Tuesday 15 September 2015 7.00pm - 8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges panel discussion

London competes on a global stage, but what price does its infrastructure pay for doing so? With shortages of housing, transport and services, is it time to rethink growth in the capital? 

Tickets: RGS-IBG members £7, non-members £10. All welcome. Booking opens in August.


Cities and regional economic growth: myth or reality?

  • Wednesday 21 October 6.00pm–8.30pm
  • 21st Century Challenges: policy forum

Successive policies have tried to rebalance the UK economy, dominated by London as a ‘global city’. Will a ‘Northern Powerhouse’ and city devolution address the ‘north-south divide’? What will this mean for other city regions?

Tickets: RGS-IBG members £7, non-members £10. All welcome. Booking opens in August.
