Focused on cities and the organizations that inhabit them, it faces head on the many contradictions that we face. it gives us insights into how we can think more intelligently and deeply about the future. Among them, why sustainability is inextricably linked with the real economy, how to ensure the development and deployment of responsible and far reaching technologies and why we should confront the tough questions of equity and access. Finally it provides us with examples of organizations who are successfully navigating the rapids and creating a more sustainable future. This is not a journey where we need to walk alone.
