URBAN ReTHINK

TRACKING THE FUTURE OF CITIES

Tracking the future of cities

NYC-Climate-Change

 

By the year 2050 more than 75% of the Earth’s projected population of 9 billion is predicted to inhabit cities, not a small number of them immense megalopolises like Shanghai, Lagos, Delhi and Bangkok where the challenge to be livable will be felt most.

Urban reThink offers a critical perspective on city planning and city planning practices both in the developed and developing world, with a particular focus on examining cities in terms of their relationship with the wider political, economic and social framework (i.e. globalization, neoliberalism, geopolitics, consumerism, etc.).

Urban reThink advocates a gradual move from consumer-centred cities to citizen-centred ones, where both environmental and social sustainability goals can be reached in tandem.
