EcoDistricts EXPLAINED! with Irwin Lowenstein
November 22, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
More than one-half of the world’s people now live in cities, a proportion expected to grow to two-thirds by 2050.
Cities now contribute to a vast and growing equity gap, where the postal code a child is born into has a bigger role in determining their future than any other single factor. Worldwide, a number of complex issues are colliding: income, education, and health disparities that sit at the root of social unrest; blight and ecological degradation; and the growing threat of climate change.
How we build our cities — from the neighborhood up — is the biggest opportunity of our lifetime.
