MIPIM 2022 Reports: the Political Leaders’ Summit

The Political Leaders’ Summit held at MIPIM 2022 brought together leaders from across Europe to share perspectives and priorities as they prepare their cities for the transition to net zero carbon.

The Summit, held on 15 March as an invitation-only event, was co-organised with Eurocities, the network of over 200 European cities that works to “help cities inspire each other” and to “ensure a good quality of life for all”.

Together with the political leaders, the event was attended by Masters’ students from the London Business School, as part of the school’s educational partnership with MIPIM, and to   write a series of reports on the key MIPIM events.

The students covering the Political Leaders’ Summit included Kasia Cios (MBA 2022) and Patrice Noujaim (MBA 2023). Cios joined the MBA programme after working as a manager in the deal advisory team at Deloitte’s New York office and Noujaim as an associate at SFO Capital Partners.
