As part of the UN Habitat's Urban Thinkers Campus the eighth edition of Sound Development was held in London in partnership with UN Habitat and explored topics related to music, real estate and sustainability.
Can we create leisure led developments where the music & culture that drives it is done sustainably, and supports the SDGs? Can we ensure gender parity? Fair pay? Zero-waste? These and many other questions were tackled in two presentations and one panel featuring UK experts from the music and real estate industries.
The theme of the evening was “Inclusive Growth: Using Music & Culture To Enhance Resilience in Cities”.
