Publisher Description

Smart cities, drones, 3D printing, Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, driverless cars, and other innovations that used to be sci-fi just a few years ago.


YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD WILL NEVER BE THE SAME


By 2030 nearly 70% of the world’s population will be residents of a city. That means 3 billion more people will be living in cities in the next 30 years. Our generation is destined to witness an incredible number of new cities and new buildings built to host our new neighbours. Once these cities are built, they won’t be built again. And they won’t be changed easily either.


I’ve travelled to 23 countries in person and even more than that digitally through my email and Skype. I don’t have all the answers – nobody does – but I’ve collected many tools along the road. These tools may help me and you to understand trends of what’s happening, and give us a competitive advantage in this ever-changing world.


Enjoy the interviews. I’ll be here waiting for your feedback. If you don’t agree, I welcome any challenge. This isn’t a one-way conversation, after all. This is a global game.
