President and CEO, The Nature Conservancy
Cities reimagined, powered by nature
Today, we are in the midst of a historic migration of people into cities. By 2050, there will be an estimated 9 billion people on Earth, and a staggering 75% of them will live in urban areas. As we begin our first Summit gathering in a major city, we will explore the question: what role can nature play in helping to balance all of the competing interests of urbanism? Mark Tercek, CEO of The Nature Conservancy, will discuss the latest innovations in urban development and conservation in a talk hosted by Ocean Collectiv founder, marine biologist and conservation strategist Dr. Ayana Elizabeth Johnson.
