Education and Human Capital Megapolises: Local Responses to Global Challenges

Today cities are not fighting for factories and plants but for human capital and people. Talented specialists and highly qualified workers have more and more opportunities to choose any workplace both in the country or anywhere in the world. Smart cities, digital technologies, green energy, sustainable development, transformation of job markets, work from home, user experience change and rising expectations of citizens - these are the new global challenges for all urban agglomerations. A city that teaches and learns is a trend followed by all citizens, educational, cultural, recreational and well-being sites. This model is much related to all global agglomerations that set education as a focus of development. Join the session and learn how countries or metropolitan areas should face these challenges: increase human capital, turn into incubators of human capital, high-quality education and become high-tech export centres. Find out how we should integrate city resources to create new educational environment, equip each citizen with a set of XXI century skills for personal fulfilment and life-long self-development.
