MIAMI, October 27, 2022 Future of Cities, a multi-sided real estate platform, venture ecosystem, and think tank pioneering and popularizing regenerative development practices, and Hub Culture, the technology ecosystem network, announce “The Global Impact Series” to be held during COP 27 on November 8 at the Hub Culture Climate Pavilion at Park Regency Sharm El Sheik Resort. 

“The Global Impact Series is about creating positive momentum for tangible and immediate change on both a global and community level,” said Tony Cho, Founder and CEO of Future of Cities. “Climate change and its impacts are an existential threat. That’s why borderless collaboration, accelerated innovation, and accelerating the ability to scale solutions is so important and what the Impact Series will help do.”

Starting at 3:00 PM local time, “Global Impact Series” guests will enjoy a series of forward-looking, action-inspiring discussions to address urban living and building, equity, and sustainability issues. The series will close with a musical experience and cocktail party featuring Eli Light.
