Alex Steffen: The shareable future of cities / by Greg Gallinger

I want to live in Alex Steffen's future.

In this video Steffen paints such a sustainably smart picture of the world that he almost makes me forget how inefficient society is at changing the landscape of our cities and learning from our mistakes.

I want to believe that as a city/country/species we will become motivated enough on a mass scale that we will avoid and overcome the looming climate crisis.

The cynical (and usually more realistic) voice in my head says that it will probably take a catastrophic event to prompt us to change our priorities.
