The Future of Cities


The Future of Cities

from Oscar Boyson

This is a conversation starter first, a video second. I’d love to hear your thoughts on cities, the future, and this project.

You can find some more thoughts, reading list and featured interviewees here:

Thank you to everybody who contributed! Trust me when I say that even if I didn’t get your footage in the cut, we can feel it in the finished product. I want to keep telling urban stories and building on these ideas – hope you do too. Knowledge is Power.

*note 12/13/16: though the waste management strategy featured in the first shot is used throughout Taiwan and began in Taipei, the truck featured is actually in Changhua.
