This shift has already taken place in many small countries, not to mention China, which now has more people living in cities and towns than villages. But even in India – where nearly 70% of the populace is rural, and more than half of all citizens are still reliant upon agriculture – the urban population has grown faster than the rural population over the past decade.

Cities: Where Good Jobs Are Created. If you were to ask me, "From all the data you have studied so far, where will the next economic breakthrough come from?

Cities: Where Good Jobs Are Created

" my answer would be: From the combination of the forces within big cities, great universities, and powerful local leaders. Those three compose the most reliable, controllable solution. Their combined effect is the most predictable solution to America's biggest current problem, which is winning the global war for good jobs.

LET’S NOT LIVE LIKE SLAVES. A film by Yannis Youlountas August 2013 / Duration: 89 minutes Springing from the Greek catacombs of Europe, a murmur through the devastated continent, “Let’s not live like slaves” (pronounced “Na min zisoume san douli” in Greek).


On city walls and countryside rocks, on the empty or destroyed billboards, on alternative newspapers and rebel radios, in squats and self-organised centres that multiply… this is the slogan that the Greek resistance is diffusing, day after day, and is inviting us to join them in choir the melodies of the film. A breath of fresh air, excitement and utopias in action springing from the Aegean Sea. » Waste management: Serious trash talk. India produces more than 55 million tonnes of solid waste every year most of which is deposited in the landfills. » Waste management: Serious trash talk

With the growing urban sector and extensive waste collection, we are heading into a vortex of poor waste management practices. There has been a lot of buzz about waste management for the past decade but little has been done to control it. Plastic Bottle Homes and Greenhouses. Incremental Housing Strategy by Filipe Balestra and Sara Göransson. Architects Filipe Balestra and Sara Göransson have developed a strategy to develop informal slums into permanent urban districts through a process of gradual improvement to existing dwellings instead of demolition and rebuilding. Update: this project is included in Dezeen Book of Ideas, which is on sale now for £12. Developed in Bombay, India, the Incremental Housing Strategy is intended to allow districts to improve organically without uprooting communities. A pilot project will be implemented in Pune, India but the architects believe the strategy could be appropriate in any country with similar urban conditions.

The architects have developed three house typologies (below) consisting of simple frames that allow for later expansion. Open-source recycling machine lets you recycle and make your own plastic products. With actual plastic recycling and recovery rates hovering around 8 percent in the United States for 2011, there's more plastic ending up in landfills than in recycling plants. It begs the question of whether it's a problem of policy, infrastructure or habit, but Dutch designer Dave Hakkens (see his customizable Phonebloks concept and wind-powered oil press, previously), has developed a open-source prototype for a plastics recycling machine, believing that it could be a matter of putting recycling straight into the hands of people, right where they live.
