A discussion with several Mayors about their approaches to promoting a socially, environmentally, economically sustainable city.

With most of the global population and capital goods concentrated in urban areas, cities are key to social development and economic prosperity. Urbanization, globalization, and climate change are interacting in a way that is unprecedented, and urban service delivery systems are becoming increasingly interlinked. This session explores the challenges and innovative approaches across multiple dimensions of sustainability at the city level – economic, environmental and social – in their contribution to shared prosperity.

The session would illustrate opportunities offered by cities in terms of access to jobs, services, overall economic gains, and overall positive impacts on the environment. It will also explore the significant challenges and trade-offs that policy makers face in ensuring that these gains are socially inclusive, resilient, and that they are achieved in an environmentally sustainable manner.

Pour les individus comme pour les pays, l’éducation est un jalon vital sur la voie menant à de nouvelles opportunités. Dans un monde où 250 millions d’enfants ne savent ni lire, ni écrire, malgré leur scolarisation, et manquent ainsi des compétences indispensables à une vie productive, il est évident que nous devons agir pour respecter une promesse historique. Suivez le débat entre ministres de l’éducation, représentants de la société civile, employeurs du secteur privé et partenaires au développement autour d’un enjeu de taille : comment mobiliser toutes les parties prenantes pour des investissements plus judicieux et davantage axés sur les résultats afin d’assurer une éducation de qualité à tous les enfants et adolescents. La contrepartie ? Une jeunesse maîtrisant les compétences adaptées aux emplois et des bénéfices économiques durables au service de la paix, la stabilité et une croissance équitable.

Les mesures visant à accroître les investissements du secteur privé dans les énergies vertes sont essentielles pour soutenir la croissance économique, sécuriser les moyens de subsistance et diminuer les émissions de gaz à effets de serre et la pollution atmosphérique locale.

Comment inciter les acteurs privés à investir davantage dans les énergies propres ?

Des investisseurs régionaux et mondiaux, un concepteur d’énergies vertes et un haut responsable gouvernemental évoqueront ensemble des pistes pour transposer à grande échelle les initiatives réussies. Le panel réfléchira également aux moyens de lever des fonds publics en faveur de l’énergie afin de déclencher des apports privés supplémentaires.

Education is a critical step on the path toward new opportunities for both people and nations. But in a world where children are not getting the skills they need to live productive lives—250 million children cannot read or write, despite many having been to school—something clearly needs to change to fulfill this historic promise. Tune in to a high-stakes discussion between Finance Ministers, civil society representatives, private employers and development partners as they explore how all stakeholders can work together to make smarter, more results-oriented investments that deliver quality education for all children and youth. The payoff? Young people who are equipped with skills for jobs, and sustained economic gains that will contribute to peace, stability, and equitable growth.

This WikiStage WBG Lima will explore the broad theme of “Social Inclusion.” In 2 tightly choreographed hours, this special event will be an inspirational sequence of talks, performance and films, which features presenters drawn from a range of disciplines and who are creative and original in their presentations.

Dramatic transitions have reshaped the contours of countries and regions over the last few decades.  These transformational shifts create new realities as entire societies are re-shaped. They also have an effect on attitudes and perceptions. Since people act on the basis of how they feel, these attitudes and perceptions matter for inclusion. Feelings of being included and respected by others, or being heard, are central to the opportunities people have, the way in which they take part in society, and the way they are treated. Social inclusion is important for ending extreme poverty and boosting shared prosperity.

The program will include 4 sessions and about 10 invited presenters from the Latin America and globally, ranging from an award-winning Venezuelan jazz musician to a world-renowned advocate for the rights of the disabled.
