The contours of the world, as we know it, are changing. New technologies, clean energy and social accountability are important ingredients in tomorrow’s recipe. This necessitates the adoption of an innovative approach to leadership, learning and policy-making. The future will be driven by advances in technology and design, and innovation in human practices. How ready is India for the future? What can be done to enable India to emerge as a leader of tomorrow?

A panel of accomplished professionals and academicians from design, innovation and technology, will discuss India’s urban future - that will have to be so different from what any part of the world can expect, purely because of the unique set of challenges that India faces.
