100+ TESTIMONIAL: Dhiru Thadani

100+ Forum Russia speaker Dhiru Thadani – architect, urbanist, Vice-president of International Society of City and Regional Planners (ISOCARP):

"Our professional community needs events like 100+ Forum Russia. This is an opportunity to talk about cities in which we live and in which we are going to live going forward. We need to change the current perception about cities.  It is crucial to promote this message, to explain it to people. We need to look at history of urban construction to understand how we can implement this experience today. To understand how we can build new cities and bring to a minimum, for instance, energy consumption. My opinion is that energy consumption levels in a Future City have to be low, as energy is going to very soon become the biggest challenge for humanity."
