Cityspace

cbcFor 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.

You can even submit a story about your favourite city space and win a laptop.

(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)
