Filmed October 27 at the 2016 ULI Fall Meeting in Dallas, Texas.
As the 21st century progresses, metropolitan regions will increasingly be affected by a series of global megatrends: climate change with attendant droughts and heat waves, income inequality, educational and health disparities, aging, housing insecurity, migrations, and many more. There are five characteristics that cities and metro regions can develop not only to help prepare for these megatrends, but also to thrive. Jonathan Rose shared these five characteristics outlined in his new book, The Well-Tempered City, and discusses creating a higher purpose for cities.
