Post Industrial cities face unprecedented challenges on the back of increasing population densities. At the heart of this is the need to renew infrastructure in a smarter more integrated way. Those that succeed will be able to compete more effectively and be in a better position to enable their businesses and institutions to exploit the global market opportunities which this agenda presents. At this briefing, Mark and Steve will explore the concept of “future cities” and why it is important for Greater Manchester.
