Lecture summary
Cities are a main source of economic activity and productivity. Today, almost half of the world’s population lives in cities and this number is growing. In Asia alone, every day more than 100,000 people move to cities seeking a better life. It is estimated that within the next 15 years, 60 percent of the world’s population will live in cities, most of them in Asia. To accommodate all of them, it is clear that citites will have to function within the means of environment and its resources. If cities are to be the foundation of human wellbeing, they must maintain clean air, clean water, and green land as the key ingredients of livability. In a rapidly urbanizing future, how can the ecology of a particular city be balanced with the socio-economic development of that city? The pathway to livable green cities should be charted on a shared vision that brings together the wisdom offered by both western and eastern system of knowledge.
