Urbanisation is one of the most significant trends impacting societies and businesses over the years and decades to come. In the real estate sector, increasing urbanisation is not only reshaping the logics and dynamics of location, but also impacting the ways real estate is being used and owned. Together with other megatrends interacting with it, urbanisation will have a profound impact on where people live, work, shop and play. This session will discuss the opportunities and challenges created by urbanisation for Finnish city planners, real estate developers, investors and managers.

The theme starts on global level with Professor Greg Clark’s presentation and continues with a panel discussion on impact to Finland.
