The Big Squeeze: Can Cities Save The Earth?

The Big Squeeze: Can Cities Save The Earth? | digital divide information | Scoop.it
What if you put all 7 billion humans into one city, a city as dense as New York, with its towers and skyscrapers? How big would that 7 billion-sized city be? As big as New Jersey? Texas? Bigger? Are cities protecting wild spaces on the planet?

Steven Flis's curator insight, December 17, 2013 2:12 PM

Its been known that Americans have lavish lifestyles compared to outher populous countries. In this article they show a represntation if the entire world lived like (had as much space) americans and it was astoudning. It would take 4 earths to fit the world if everyone had this lavish lifestyle. So we obviously need to change our ways. Cities ae very helpful to sharing this earth. They serve as a main hub so youll only have to ship to a few places. This with the shortening of distances would save tons of gas and othe rescources. But as the article states everyone living in a Main city wouldnt be possible because people need to produce outside the city. So in my opinion for this city world to work it would need to be a few megacities preferably one on each continent and for them to the city be surronded by production methods.

Grief counselors are always made available to help students when there is a traumatic event at a school, such as this week, when a gunman entered a Florida high school and fired a military-style assault weapon, killing 17 people. While health experts say counseling after a tragedy is vital, too many schools don’t have anywhere near enough health professionals to help students before the catastrophes.

Many Lenses, Many Perspectives: African American History Resou... | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Many Lenses, Many Perspectives: African American History Resources on the Smithsonian Learning Lab by: Candra Flanagan, Coordinator, Student and Teacher Initiatives, National Museum of African American History and Culture In her widely acclaimed 2009 TEDTalk, novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie speaks of the danger of the single story. “The single story creates stereotypes, and the problem with stereotypes is not that they are untrue, but that they are incomplete. They make one story become the only story.” One of the most important skills a student of history (whatever one’s age) develops is “multiple perspective taking”--the ability to view history not as one story with one inviolate truth, but rather as a layered story with varying perspectives. These multiple perspectives give voice to the multiple actors within any historical moment and allow people to cultivate empathy and understanding as well as a sense of connectedness. Investigating the African American experience in the United States presents an opportunity to develop perspective taking as one understands a more nuanced version of history. The National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC) created Learning Lab resources to give educators and students of history a place to locate resources related to the African American experience and to stimulate critical thinking through multiple perspectives. Middle and high school students can utilize the NMAAHC Learning Lab collections to supplement and expand the narrative of their historical research projects. For students participating in National History Day the museum has curated a collection of Smithsonian resources that highlight African American history related to the annual theme. Educators and students can explore the 2018 collection on Conflict and Compromise in History.
