Future Cities: Sustainable Solutions, Radical Designs — We stand at a crossroads. Cities must change radically to achieve long-term sustainability. Energy, food and water sources, transportation systems and basic infrastructure, must all adapt to emerging pressures from climate change, dwindling resources and growing urban populations.
How will we meet this immense challenge? In a program that is part celebration of human ingenuity and part stark reminder of the problems we face, influential architects, urban planners, scientists and technologists lay out radical blueprints and innovative solutions as they imagine housing, feeding, transporting and sustaining city dwellers of the not too distant future.
other speakers include:
Alan Alda, Cynthia Breazeal, Brian Greene, Peter Galison, Ray Kurzweil, Richard Leaky, Oliver Sacks, David Sinclair, Saul Griffith, and MORE
