Please join us for an engaging discussion with Professor Ian Goldin (Oxford University) about his latest book, Age of the City. NYU Wagner Professor Natasha Iskander will introduce Professor Goldin and moderate the discussion.

Abstract: Cities are the engines of social and economic progress. They are now threatened by a combination of remote work which is undermining city ecosystems, and by growing inequality, climate change, pandemics, populist politics and the threat artificial intelligence poses to work. In his new book Age of the City, Ian Goldin discusses how to ensure cities can overcome these great challenges to provide sustainable homes for humanity.
