Doug Saunders’ Arrival City
Join us for an online reading of Canadian journalist Doug Saunders’ Arrival City, a progressive and optimistic narrative about our urban future that maps a world of “arrival cities”, the destination for new migrants. Most humans on the planet now live in cities and over the next few decades, another quarter to a third of the world will join them. This urban migration marks the most decisive social and cultural shift since the Enlightenment. “We will end the century as a wholly urban species,” notes Doug Saunders, the consequences of which will affect everything from governance systems and financial markets to climate conditions and fuel resources.
