As the world’s population increasingly concentrates in cities, what is the future of urban life? Taking a look back at ancient civilizations and a look forward at climate-disrupted cities, primarily along coastlines, this conversation will contemplate how people will live in the Bay Area and beyond in coming decades. We will touch on the role of urban parks and farms, green architecture, healthy buildings, the role of trust, the importance of planning and how to build the ability to bounce back from the punches an angry mother nature is throwing at us.

I miss California!
I have been listening to the Commonwealth Club on and off for many years. Now that I have Stitcher, I can store them in "Listen Later" and have a feast. Always intellectually stimulating. Wonderful guests and great questions from the audience.
