Our online Global Conversations series enables dialogues across borders between some of the most creative minds of our planet

Bringing together two contemporary city disruptors: Ghanaian architect Cecil Abbey, who has been working across some of Africa's fastest growing cities; and Asian-British architect, Kieren Majhail, a fierce advocate for more collaborative planning between stakeholders in developing city-wide projects, and for diversity in the built environment.

Moderated by Elettra Bordonaro – co-founder and creative director at Light Follows Behaviour, who transforms urban spaces with lighting – they will be in conversation around ideas of cities of the future and how to embrace our very human need for belonging and our responsibilities to the environment and global wellbeing.
