Urban planner to speak at July Green Drinks

ecocity1

This evening, Hrydhal Damani who works with Surbana Urban Planning Group will speak on eco cities in Asia.

In the wake of environmental pressures faced by every city, would it be possible for Asian cities to balance its aspirations for economic progress against investing in environmental conservation? Is there a way that they can possibly leap frog into an ecologically sustainable state of being without compromising on economic progress?

Considering that more than half the world’s population live in urban areas, cities have the potential to create a quick and quantum impact on the state of affairs. This talk explores the tried and tested technological and planning solutions which can aid cities to plan for an ecologically and economically balanced future.

We hope to see you there!!
