This TED talk has been really blowing my mind recently. It has both made me care more about where we live, and at the same time dislike the places that as James describes them, are the places that aren’t worth caring about or fighting for.
Just to be clear, this isn’t always a, downtown = good, suburbs = bad. The goal is meaningful places. Places that create citizens and not consumers. Places that create neighbors.
Please excuse the foul language in the video.
