The Future of Cities

by Ellen MacArthur Foundation

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

At the heart of creativity, innovation and growth, cities play a central role as motors of the global economy. 54% of the world’s population live in urban areas with this figure set to rise considerably over the coming decades. Cities account for 85% of global GDP generation and are also huge collectors of materials and nutrients, accounting for 75% of natural resource consumption, half of global waste production, and the large majority of greenhouse gas emissions.

As urban areas continue to grow, our cities will have to build more housing, deal with greater pressure on road and rail networks, and work out how to cope with a growing demand for resources.

The question is: how should we build the cities of the future?
