Why urban farming is changing the future of agriculture

Why urban farming is changing the future of agriculture | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
The planet is growing more food than ever, and yet millions of people continue to starve worldwide. People are hungry everywhere — in the country, in the suburbs. But increasingly, one of the front lines in the war against hunger is in cities. As urban populations grow, more people find themselves in food deserts, areas with “[l]imited access to supermarkets, supercenters, grocery stores, or other sources of healthy and affordable food,” according to a report by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

New technologies are changing the equation, allowing people to grow food in places where it was previously difficult or impossible, and in quantities akin to traditional farms.

How to Build a Smart City

How to Build a Smart City | Urban and Master Planning | Scoop.it
We are in the midst of a historic (and wholly unpredicted) rise in urbanization. But it’s hard to retrofit old cities for the 21st century. Enter Dan Doctoroff. The man who helped modernize New York City — and tried to bring the Olympics there — is now C.E.O. of a Google-funded startup that is building, from scratch, the city of the future.

Urbanism isn't just the study of urban geography as it is, but it also looks to use ideas of design, architectural, transportation, and sustainability to create better cities.  This Freakonomics podcast looks at ways that New York City has changed, with ideas of how to start a new city being experimented with in Toronto.  This 99PI podcast looks at European urbanist ideas that shaped many cities that were damaged during WWII (part II).  Successful cities bring in more residents which bring higher housing costs--so can a city be too successful for it's own good?  San Francisco grapples with changing economic issues as it is too expensive to hire workers to fill low-skill jobs

Seth Dixon's curator insight, March 10, 3:41 PM

100 years ago, the biggest trends in urbanization showed that the biggest cities in the world were also the most economically powerful cities in the world in core areas.  In the last 50 years, the most obvious change has been the remarkable growth in of the world’s largest cities in the developing world.   

Questions to Ponder: Why has there been such spectacular growth of megacities, especially in the developing world?  How is this map ranking global cities different from a list of the world’s largest cities?  What regional patterns do exist in the 25 most economically powerful cities in the world?  What are the implications of these patterns?

In this article it states the most economically powerful cities. From New York to London they are both powerhouse cities in music, finance and fashion. Even though London lost its run after decades it is still the most economically powerful city since 2012. Tokyo, being the 3rd largest economically powerful city is the worlds largest metro economy. And from Hong Kong (4th city) to Toronto we can see that the world is getting more and more powerful in the economy.

C'est excellent. Mais ça c'est sans compter aussi avec les espaces de parkings sous-terrains qui vont progressivement se libérer au grain de la disparition des véhicules en centre-ville. 

 Le potentiel est juste énorme. Et en plus c'est bio, parce que dans les villes, il n'y a pas ou quasiment pas de ravageurs.
