Cities2050 returns with a new strategic workshop

Cities2050 Manchester was the second in a global series on the theme of ‘securing the future in a connected world’.

It explored the future security, resilience and sustainability challenges for Greater Manchester and the North West as a nationwide case study.

The Cities2050 Manchester strategic workshop was by exclusive invitation only and was free to attend, gathering leaders from across government, industry and academia.  The workshop divided into three distinct stages and took the participants on a journey that built throughout the day.
