The world is on the verge of a shift from predominantly rural to mainly urban.
Today, more than half the world's population live in urban areas, and by 2030, city dwellers will make up roughly 60 percent of the globe's population - these are among the issues that the first Muscat Youth Summit will discuss when it convenes from December 7 to 9 at Al Nahda Resort & Spa.
According to H H Sayyid Faisal al Said, CEO, Brand Oman Management Unit (BOMU) and creator of the first Muscat Youth Summit, Cities are where we are at our best and worst. They're home to many of mankind's proudest achievements, but they're also where our biggest challenges are to be faced.""
