ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Aromar Revi is a global expert on Sustainable Development; Co-Chair of the UN Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN), from where he helped lead a successful global campaign for an urban Sustainable Development Goal (SDG 11) as part of the UN’s 2030 development agenda, which brought major global urban institutions and over 300 cities and organizations together. He has the distinction of addressing the UN General Assembly twice on the theme of sustainable cities, in 2014 and 2017.
Aromar’s policy, practice and research work lie at the interface of sustainability and climate science; and the emerging discipline of ‘urban science’, that he is helping define internationally. He is a member of the UCL-Nature Sustainability Expert Panel on urban research and global sustainability. In 2016, UNSDSN & the SDG Academy launched the first 75-session global Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) on Sustainable Cities & SDG 11, curated by him featuring 30 of the world’s leading urbanists. 10,000 participants from 110 countries have registered for this.
