This forum brings together internationally leading academics, policy-makers and practitioners in discussion about what are 'good governance' principles and lessons for sustainable city innovation. Drawing on recent research and global initiatives, the speakers and audience will explore how good governance can enhance urban sustainability policies and practice, while also considering the limitations of, and challenges for, the transferability of 'good practice' lessons across local, organisational and cultural contexts.
