What If the Entire World Lived in 1 City?

What If the Entire World Lived in 1 City? | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

Two Yale architects pose the question in an ambitious research project.


"Hsiang and Mendis have increasingly come to believe that the only way to study and plan for our urban planet is to conceptualize its entire population in one seamless landscape – to picture 7 billion of us as if we all lived in a single, massive city."

Liam Michelsohn's curator insight, October 17, 2013 10:54 AM

I was very exited by the work being done by Bimal Mendis and Joyce Hsiang.  I hear to much on the news and in conversation about over population, energy shortages and brutal living conditions.  Creating a digital interactive medium is the most efficient way to educate the internet consuming public about issues and developments all over the world.  It reminds me of the blue marble picture taken from Apollo 17, the first full color image of our planet.  This image is considered to be the defining moment that awoke the conservation movement and understanding that the earth is our home and should be treated as such.  I cant help hoping a program like “the city of seven billion” will help people to relies we are all one species and from that develop a move beneficial way of coexisting.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 30, 7:57 AM

Cultural differences can be subtle or jarring.  This case is one that the differences in the community was so great that there were two parallel communities coexisting in the same space.  More than anything, the overtness of their religious orthodoxy were markers of otherness, that didn't lead to assimilation and interaction, but fueled their distinctiveness and isolation.  The Guatemalan village, in essence, didn't feel comfortable with their 'otherness' and demanded that they leave.  The Lev Tahor are considered far more conservative than most ultra orthodox groups and their customs have clashed with Canadian and Guatemalan officials as well as most of the Jewish world. Does the state have the the right or even duty to investigate what is occurring in 'closed' communities?  When should a group's religious liberties considered secondary?

Access to education is one of the great indicators of development and political stability--educators wish nothing but the best education possible for the next generation, but the experience is quite variable across the globe.  As many places have recently started school again, this article is a reminder that this practice is experienced differently around the world.

Fragile States Index

Fragile States Index | AP HUMAN GEOGRAPHY DIGITAL  STUDY: MIKE BUSARELLO | Scoop.it

"Weak and failing states pose a challenge to the international community. In today’s world, with its highly globalized economy, information systems and interlaced security, pressures on one fragile state can have serious repercussions not only for that state and its people, but also for its neighbors and other states halfway across the globe.  The Fragile States Index (FSI), produced by The Fund for Peace, is a critical tool in highlighting not only the normal pressures that all states experience, but also in identifying when those pressures are pushing a state towards the brink of failure."

Comparing the five major world religions

"It's perfectly human to grapple with questions, like 'Where do we come from?' and 'How do I live a life of meaning?' These existential questions are central to the five major world religions -- and that's not all that connects these faiths.

When studying migration, it is important to ask the question "why do we move from place to place?"  Overwhelmingly, as we all know, the main reason for migration is to improve economic well-being.  However, that is not to say that there is a lot of options, or that the gains are worth the costs of the migration.  This article does a great job at highlighting a glaring problem many migrant workers face.
