The biggest risks facing cities and some solutions

Interesting point of view from Robert Muggah, about the risks that are facing big cities.

“… Cities are where the future happens first. They’re open, creative, dynamic, democratic, cosmopolitan, sexy. They’re the perfect antidote to reactionary nationalism.” 

 

“…Cities have a dark side, they take just up the 3% of the world´s surface area, but they account  for more than the 75% of our energy consumption and emit 80% of the greenhouse gases”
