The Urban Century
When managed well, cities provide a more sustainable way of organizing people’s lives: they enable economies of scale and network effects, and reduce the need for transportation, making economic activity more environmentally friendly. The proximity and diversity of people can spark innovation and create employment as exchanging ideas breeds new ideas. The diversity of cities can also instill social tolerance and provide opportunities for civic engagement. Innovation and investment in urban cores can help resolve challenges posed by poorly managed cities, such as higher costs of living, weaker community bonds, increased pollution, traffic congestion, and stress.
Urbanization and urban living’s benefits far outweigh its challenges, and people continue to be drawn to cities in search of economic, social and creative opportunities. Today, more than half of humans already lives in cities and by the middle of this century, two-thirds will be urban dwellers. We are now living the Urban Century. When it ends, humans will have redefined the way they live, for generations to come.
Join us in innovating for our urban future. We are changing cities, one idea at a time.
