CityChangers are a bunch of independent thinkers who share a concern for the state of the world. The status quo doesn’t cut it anymore! We crave change – and CityChangers.org is our way of connecting the dots for a positive transition – and the people who do and can make that happen. But this is our ‘time out’ space, where we take a short break from all the research and inspirational stories to reflect on the issues that we’ve been contemplating personally. Here, the Urban Future team and guest writers share our meandering thoughts and invite you, the reader, to weigh in on some of the less fashionable topics and our sometimes challenging viewpoints. Go wild with your ideas in the comments – we’d love to hear your take on things.
