Immigration and future cities (1): The pressures of change: How can cities make it work?

19 November 2015, 11.00 AM - 19 November 2015, 12.00 PM


What are the challenges facing cities when it comes to immigration? What kind of numbers of new immigrants are we likely to see in cities in the future? What impact will this have on identity, belonging and citizenship? This panel looks at the challenges cities face and how to make change work. Steve Hanson (author of the Foresight Future of Cities paper on identity and belonging) joins Rachel Sylvester (Times), Abdullahi Farah (Bristol Somali Resource Centre) and Ted Cantle (Institute of Community Cohesion). Chaired by Sunder Katwala (British Future).
