Rapid Urbanisation & Urban Transformation. Module 1 (Lessons 1-4) introduces you to rapid urbanisation and associated challenges: ghettoisation and the loss of agricultural land. The key drivers of “old urbanisation” were industrialisation and globalisation, both motivated by economic growth. The drivers of the new urbanism include sustainability, and the creativity to build cities that value people and planet over profit. We explore why ‘smart cities’ are not always high-tech; how ‘post-industrial’ design can rejuvenate the ghost towns of the industrial era; and the growth in eco-villages, and renewable energy cities. This Module supports UN SDG 2, 7, 11, 12, 15. On completion you will receive a Certificate of Completion (Global Socio-Cultural Futures Module 1: City Futures) from Global Futures Education.
