Urbanization and the future of cities - Vance KiteView full lesson: http://ed.ted.com/lessons/urbanization-and-the-future-of-cities-vance-kite
About 10,000 years ago, hunter-gatherers, aided by rudimentary agriculture, moved to semi-permanent villages and never looked back. With further developments came food surpluses, leading to commerce, specialization and, many years later with the Industrial Revolution, the modern city. Vance Kite plots our urban past and how we can expect future cities to adapt to our growing populations.

THE FUTURE OF CITIESThis is a conversation starter first, a video second. I’d love to hear your thoughts on cities, the future, and this project.
I shared some words, a reading list and featured interviewees here: medium.com/@oscarboyson/the-future-of-cities-ba4e26c807fe#.lrpyoofi4
* Note that the first shot in the movie a "Garbage Truck in Taipei" is actually in Changhua City, also in Taiwan. Thank you Taiwanese friends for pointing this out!
Thank you to everybody who contributed! Trust me when I say that even if I didn’t get your footage in the cut, we can feel it in the finished product. I want to keep telling urban stories and building on these ideas - hope you do too. Knowledge is Power.

How megacities are changing the map of the world | Parag Khanna"I want you to reimagine how life is organized on earth," says global strategist Parag Khanna. As our expanding cities grow ever more connected through transportation, energy and communications networks, we evolve from geography to what he calls "connectography." This emerging global network civilization holds the promise of reducing pollution and inequality — and even overcoming geopolitical rivalries. In this talk, Khanna asks us to embrace a new maxim for the future: "Connectivity is destiny."

Urbanisation and the rise of the megacity | The EconomistUrbanisation is happening faster today than at any time in history. By 2030 nearly 9% of the global population will live in so-called megacities—cities with more than 10m inhabitants.

In 1950 New York and Tokyo were the only so called megacities; cities with more than 10m inhabitants.
By 1980 these were joined by Mexico City, Sao Paulo and Osaka.
In 2010 there were over 20 megacities spanning almost every continent.
Today, there are 32 megacities.
Urbanisation is happening faster than at any time in human history. Asia accounts for over half of today's megacities. By 2030 nearly 9% of the world's population will live in 41 megacities. But it's in Africa where some of the most rapid urbanisation will take place in the future.

"Urbanisation, migration and the future metropolis" with Prof Michael KeithMass migration to cities perpetuates urban-rural economic inequality, and can pose a heavy burden for material and social infrastructure. Professor Michael Keith, Co-Director of the Future of Cities programme, considers the practical demands of shaping the cities of the future, how cities can drive behavioural change, and how we could sequence the moral DNA of the new city to minimise future inequality.
