PAT Cast #12: The 15 Minute City

17 / 01 / 23 - ###tdEstimateReading_news_minutes### minute read

We can better understand cities when we put urban life under the microscope. With the UN estimating that 68% of the world’s population will live in cities by 2050, there's no better time to get under the skin of urbanisation. 

In this episode of the PAT Cast, we’re learning about the 15 minute city - a concept of urban planning designed to enrich people’s lives by ensuring they have easy access to all the essentials to thrive in city life. We'll also discuss the megatrend of urbanisation and explore how it is shaping the communities and economies of tomorrow. And we’ll delve into the role of data intelligence in making smarter investment decisions and even smarter cities around the world.

Your host is Ed Whittaker and on the panel we have:

  • Marcelo Cajias, Head of Data Intelligence, PATRIZIA 
  • Timo Hämäläinen, Urban Finland
