The webinar will be the opportunity to learn about what inequalities supposes for a world where inequalities are higher than a few decades ago.

The growth of mega-cities, particularly in the Global South and in Asia is creating massive social, health, economic, and environmental challenges. These cities are facing water and energy shortages, issues with waste management, and social unrest driven by economic inequality, to name just a few of their common problems.

2) To understand the strong correlation between inequality and social problems
3) To raise awareness to local authorities about the impacts of inequality in daily-basis life in cities.
Duration: 45 minutes
The webinar will be conducted in English only.
