Recently we hosted a salon on the Spanish island of Ibiza, a hot spot that brought together developers and financiers with activists and community organizers for a rich dialogue exploring macro-issues such as purpose-driven development, female empowerment, indigenous rights and how we can use technology appropriately to enhance quality of living in cities.
Below you can find a selection of interviews with some of our awesome co-hosts, advisors and partners to learn what was trending at Future of Cities summer 2021 Regenerative Placemaking salon in Ibiza, Spain.

What began as a research collaboration between business leaders and experts from Harvard University, Unilever, The World Bank, and The London School of Economics has evolved into a platform that connects the CEO agenda with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
