Enrichment in the Spring
City of the Future
Today, 54% of the world’s population lives in urban areas; a proportion that the UN expects to increase to 66% by 2050, with close to 90% of the increase concentrated in Asia and Africa. By necessity, the city of the future should be sustainable, maximize resource-use efficiency and draw from renewable sources to supply energy, food and water for all. These questions bring many uncertainties but one key certainty: science and technology will be essential to bring the city of the future to life.

Running from Sunday, April 29 to Thursday, May 3, 2018 the Enrichment in the Spring program will explore with you the building of the City of the Future. Our program will be chaired by Professor Omar Knio and is open to the entire KAUST community and invited guests.
