For the first time in human history more people live in the world’s cities than in the country.
CBC radio has created a website dedicated to cities in conjunction with the United Nations World Urban Forum in Vancouver. The World Urban Forum is a gathering of thousands of people from the world’s cities to look for ways to deal with this new reality and give people a chance at a better life. The website lists a series of radio shows dedicated to cities and an interactive map with city facts.
(Editor’s note – the CBC is also running a TV series called “cityspace” this week on Newsworld covering the World Urban Forum – every day this week at 8 and repeating at 11)
