Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
Across the planet, hundreds of billions of dollars are being invested in new cities, in countries including China, India, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Ecuador, the Philippines, Palestine, Morocco, Afghanistan, Germany and more. The Cities Foundation has just published a detailed report exploring what the future holds for these urban mega projects, and the impact they could have on society at large. The report offers pioneering insights into a field that is as yet underexposed, but which will potentially impact upon the wider field of urban development.The report’s principle aim is to provide actionable recommendations for new city leaders and builders. It distils key trends and priorities that emerged during Cityquest – KAEC Forum in December 2014, the annual gathering of the Cityquest community.
