Shadow Cities – TED talk 14mins 38mb MP4neuwirth

Date: 2005, Language: Eng, Length: 14mins, Size: 38mb Type: mp4 Film-maker: TED.


For his book Shadow Cities, he spent two years exploring one of the most profound trends of our time: the mass migration of the world’s population into urban shantytowns. A billion people live as squatters. Life in a favela, slum, shantytown is hard: no water, no transport, no sewage. But in the squatter cities of Rio, Nairobi, Istanbul and Mumbai, Neuwirth discovered restaurants, markets, clinics and effective forms of self-organization.

Our challenge, Neuwirth says, isn’t to end squatter cities or shut down gray markets–but to engage and empower those who live and work in them.
