Today Erica Klampfil - Global Future Mobility Manager for Ford’s Research and Advanced Engineering team - makes her way to China. She isn’t there to wander the Great Wall or pay her respects to the Terracotta Army. Instead she’s there to explore the rising need for sustainable practices among mega-cities.
Klampfil, like so many other Futurists, is attending the Shape China 2015 conference. This event (which is part of the World Economic Forum Initiative, a program dedicated to promoting activism across the globe) showcases the growing need for mega-cities... and the effect this need has on the environment. It highlights concerns of air quality, over-population, and consumer apathy.
As Ford’s representative, Klampfil will soon address these issues - as well as her plan to counter them. Check it out!
Shape China 2015 is part of the Global Shapers network, an ever-growing collection of entrepreneurs and social economists. It’s meant to illuminate the problems of the future - and provide viable solutions to those problems. Klampfil is one of many working toward better, brighter days.
