Challenges of More People Living in Urban Areas
Today almost half of the world's population live in urban areas, and that number is growing. By 2030, six out of every ten people will live in a city and by the middle of this century the number of city dwellers will hit 70%. With that growth will come some huge challenges.
On this edition of UWM Today, meet two people who have devoted much of their life to the study of the urban environment.
Margo Anderson is a distinguished professor of history and faculty member of the Urban Studies Program at UWM. And Mike Martin, an alumni of the program, has spent the past 25 years working for organizations that try to make cities better places to live.
