Thinking global, living local: Voices in a globalized world

Our 2nd Future Challenges Reader is published: The New City

Written by on . Published in News.

A few weeks ago we published the first in a series of Future Challenges Readers. Now it’s time for volume 2.

In “The New City” we go on a hunt for ideas that are helping cities worldwide manage their growing populations. From Masdar City near Abu Dhabi to Toronto, Canada, cities are thinking creatively and boldly about the changes they need to make to provide a safe and vibrant home for their residents. In the lead article Steven Watson looks at several examples of cities that are thinking creatively about how to prepare for their growing populations. Our network of authors shares their responses from India, Pakistan, Nigeria, Costa Rica and the United States.
