Future Cities

Today nearly 55% of the world's 4.2 billion inhabitants live in cities. By 2050, the U.N. estimates nearly 7 out of 10 people in the world will live in urban areas. By 2050, it is estimated that 43 megacities will exist — urban centers with populations greater than 10 million people. Our cities are the beating hearts of our society, engines of our economic, social and political lives. But what comes to mind when you hear the words “urban” and “inner-city”? Opportunity and hope? Cement jungles? For some, the words conjure up images of buildings, traffic, noise, crowded streets, and the anxiety and excitement of fast-paced life. For others, the words “urban” and “inner-city” evoke images of crime, distress, poverty, and grittiness. Not kindness, generosity, and compassionate love.

In today’s Elevate the Conversation, we examine urban kindness. What is it? How can we find it and cultivate more of it? Given this growing importance, is there a key to unlocking more goodness in our growing urban centers?
