Powering Progress Together
Since 2012, the Shell Powering Progress Together conferences bring together some of the world’s leading thinkers from business, government and society to address future energy challenges. Global population and rising prosperity are placing greater pressure on the world’s vital resources.
At the same time, society is experiencing political, economic and environmental turbulence. We believe these challenges can be met through cooperation between diverse parties, which is why we have launched Powering Progress Together events throughout the world, facilitating dialogue on these topics. Initiated in the Netherlands in 2012, events have since been held in Germany, the Philippines, Turkey and the USA.
ROTTERDAM: MAY 15, 2014
Resilience in an urban world
Building on last year’s theme – the energy-water-food nexus and the role resilience can play in addressing future resource stresses – this year’s conference will focus on resilience in the context of an urbanising world.
