BECAUSE TO MAKE A SOCIETY, MAKE TOMORROW – IT REQUIRES SAFE AND INCLUSIVE CITIES OPENED TO THE WORLD!
The world demographic explosion, the world population increased from 225 million in 1820 to 7.5 billion today, has led to a total reorganization of urban areas. By 2050, an additional 2.5 billion people are expected to live in cities. In concrete terms, it means that 2 out of 3 people in the world will be living in urban areas within 30 years, if this UN forecast is accurate. This perspective leads to deep reflection on the structuring of such urban spaces in order for them to remain sustainable. Today, it must be recognized that our cities need to begin their transition to more inclusive, sustainable and resilient models. Indeed, 70% of the world’s GDP is concentrated in urban areas, but 70% of the total waste happens there as well, which gives rise to an alarming figure: 60% of greenhouse effect gases are concentrated on 2% of the planet’s surface.
